Assuming there is nothing wrong with the Brakes, and that the Brake Pedal does not have the "play" you describe:
There is a Push Brake Light Switch located up behind the Brake Pedal Arm. It is a Push actuated with a Plunger being pushed in activating the Brake Lights.
Follow the Brake Pedal Arm up into behind the Dash. The Switch is adjustable and removable. There are two nuts on this Switch, holding and securing the Switch to a bracket. The Switch itself screws in/out of the bracket after the nuts have been loosened.
Unplug the Switch.
The nuts need to be loosened.
The Switch in your case will need to be unscrewed out of the bracket moving the Plunger away from the Brake Pedal Arm.
In some cases this Plunger is already all the way OUT (with it plugged back in) and the Brake Lights will stay on. In this case the Switch has to be replaced. It will also need to be replaced if the plunger is stuck in the "in" position. The Plunger is retrned to the "out" position by a spring, which maybe malfunctioning.
WITH a helper looking at the Brake Lights and the Switch plugged back in:
Adjust (screw out) the Switch in the Bracket so that the Brake lights to go out. Again if the adjustment does not solve it, remove and replace this Switch.
Once that adjustment is complete, turn the locking nuts on the Switch - securing it in place.
This Switch is available at Autozone Part #80172 for about $15.
