This may sound too simple, but first verify that you are getting voltage to the light socket. Use meter on d.c. If you are getting voltage, and your bulb is good, it could be a bad ground. Don't overlook the brake light system goes through the directional signal in the steering column.

Your brake light switch is eith stuck or gone bad. It is located on the brake pedal and you can try to jiggle it to see if it will free itself and turn the lights off or you will need to replace it. It's a pretty easy job and relatively inexpensive. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

SOURCE: brake lights and turn signals
I had this same problem on a 1995 Lincoln Towncar -- thought I might have to replace the Signal Switch - then it was suggested to check the ground for this wiring. However I was told to check the HAZARD SWITCH. The Hazard Switch was not On or Off it was stuck in the middle. Simply pushing it up and down correct the problem. I was also told that maybe a little WD40 on the HAZARD SWITCH might help.
This is an easy try me first fix. It worked for me and cost 0.

SOURCE: Brake lights refuse to turn off.
Your brake light switch is stuck. It is located on the brake pedal and they will do this sometimes. You can replace this part for relatively cheap and it doesn't take very long. The other option is to spray it with some WD-40 and try to work it out. Do one of these two things and you will be good to go. Let me know if you have any other questions.
