That little black thing was probly your brake switch or at least part of it, when the pedal is depressed it completes the circuit and turns your brake lights on

Brake lights will not turn off on my 94 Nissan Altima


Your problem should be that the rubber stops that are mounted at the top of your break pedal came out or are worn down too much to press the buttons all the way in.
What they do is push the button that switches off your break lights when the break pedal is released (yes, kind of backwards way to design it, i know). That's why your lights stay on even when your car is off. I had to go to the junkyard to find replacements for mine and they are a ***** to replace.
They are chipped away easily by the break switches when your car shakes badly over a prolonged period of time. Like driving a couple of weeks on a bad front tire.

Dashboard warning brake light stays on continuosly nissan altima


Try this, Since you are applying the hand brake. Manually pull up on the emergency pedal and see if the light goes out. If this does work then you could have one of several problems. but, I am thinking that you might be able to adjust the brake tensioner if this car has one.

Brake lights stay on when lights are on


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.

Nissan Altima 1995 Brake Light swith staying on


I know this is outdated but for those with this problem which i had too, it is a rubber stopper that attaches to the brake pedel itself to keep the switch depressed on my car for there is 2 switches and there is 2 rubber stops attached to the brake pedal. this being gone will cause the brake lights to stay on all the time.
