check your on and off button at the steering wheel.
use a multi-meter set in the ohm postion and see if there is conectivity as you push each button. you will have to take the button off the steering wheel but it will take
just a few minites. while your at it you can check the right side also.

SOURCE: Breaklights keep coming on
By brakelight I am going to assume you mean the warning indicator on the dash. Not sure if you are planning to do the work yourself or if you are just looking to find out the probable cause. Here are some things to look at to narrow down the exact problem but you are definitely going to need at least a front wheel brake job. I would suggest that you replace the pads, calipers and rotors when doing this since the problem has gone this far.
You most likely have a leaking front caliper that is causing these problems.
Is the brake fluid low in the master cylinder?
Remove the front tires and do a visual inspectioninspection of the braking components.
1) Check for any visable leaks, a leaking caliper will cause the brakes to grab and lock up.
2) Spin the rotors, they should spin freely without grabbing, there will be a slight drag from the brakes. Both sides should be equal. Grabbing rotors can indicate a warped rotor which can also cause the brakes to lock up.
3) Is there plenty of bake pad remaining? You need to have a minimum of 1/4" pad remaining though more is prefered. Low pads can allow the piston to come out of the caliper farther than designed and not allow the piston to retract properly.
If you would like assistance on how to do these repairs just reply to this message and I will help you out.

Brake light switch has failed replace it and the lights and cruise should work. When the switch fails it comes apart and the computer thinks the brak is on and the lights won't come on.Costa $20.00 and has a three wire plug on it and is simple to change.

there may be a vacuum hose disconnected or leaking. check under the hood for a leak at the c/c vacuum diaphram. probably on the left side of the engine compartment, 3-4' in diameter with connections to the throtle linkage.

If you turn the key on and the check engine light comes on then its not blown. If you start the car the light should go off within a few seconds. This desnt mean a code is not stored in memory. All it means is the problem may not of been seen twice in order for the light to stay on. You will need a data scanner to see whats going on with all your sensors. Its the only way to diagnose this. Also if you have a vacuum leak on the engine like a gasket leaking or a vacuum line not hooked up the cruise will be a problem. It could be a small crack in a vacuum line that only opens under certain conditions.
