Randyref: The most common problem with the Nissan's when it came to brake lights staying on, was a little plastic stopper button
which is located up near the top of the brake pedal arm.
If you follow the brake pedal arm up, you will find the brake light switch. If you push the pedal down, feel where the brake light switch is suppose to contact the pedal frame.
You will probably discover that there is a hole there instead of something that the switch was to come in contact with so it could be compressed which in turn, opened the circuit causing the brake lights to go out.
The part is available from Nissan and usually is stocked because it is a common problem. I stock 3-4 in my shop and I'm not a dealer.
The part it self is a round semi soft clear plastic disc with a small button which you push through the hole in the pedal frame, where it snaps in place.
I'm willing to bet that this will solve your problem. Check it and get back to me.

The brake light switch is stuck open or is defective. Find it under the dash mounted on the brake lever, and make sure it is adjusted properly. If it is and the lights still stay on the switch needs replacing.

Brake light flickers while driving down the road.


Check the brake fluid. It may be just low enough to occasionally turn the light on as you hit bumps and it sloshes a little. Add a little brake fluid to the reservoir and check the brake pads all around.

Look at your brake light switch attached to the upper end of your brake pedal. When the brakes are released your switch should be engaged. I would remove it and check it with a meter to make sure its working normally.
