Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2
My brake lights will not turn off when I turn off my car. I've already changed my switch and that did nothing.
The problem is due to a damaged relay. But as you have already changed it, it may have been a damaged switch. Recheck it.

On a "one brake light bulb per side" setup,the brake switch feeds 12v to the turn/hazard switch,and the switch will apply 12v to both when no turn signal activated,the right only when the left signal is on,the left only when the right signal is on,and none when the hazards are on.With this in mind,it IS possible that the turn signal switch or wiring is the issue.If you are still running the original switch,try removing the switch and cleaning/regreasing the contacts(or look for something obviously worn or broken).If the switch is bad-hey,you got almost 50 years out of it! I'll bet you won't get that much longevity out of anything built now!

SOURCE: Failing brake lights
On page 158 of this manual it says that the stop lamps are fuse position number 17. Find that fuse in your fusebox and pull it out to see if it is bad. If so, replace it and then test brake lights again to see if they are functioning properly

witch brake light? the tail light or the one in the dashboard? if its the tail light it maybe ur brake switch that went bad or a ground wire that touch the frame somewhere in the car. often they are place under the carpet and pass between the driver seat and the door frame.
