The brake lights wont go off. Even when the car is shut off

Bad break light switch. Look up high on the brake pedal shaft up under the dash, you will see the button switch. Easy to replace but hard to get to.

What goes wrong with abs brake module in 99 dodge ram 2500 diesel truck

It isn't often we get enough information to make a diagnosis, but I think we can in this case.
You have a break light switch under the dashboard that is plastic, and has a "plunger" button.
When you press the brake pedal, that allows the plunger button to extend, which closes contacts inside the switch, and makes the brake lights come on.
If and when that switch either breaks or gets loose, the plunger will stay extended, and the brake lights will stay on, discharging the battery.
God bless your efforts to see & fix this.

I replaced the brake light switch and wont shut off

Pull UP on the brake pedal while someone watches the brake lights. If they go off (they should), you need to check the adjustment. It should be adjustable to make contact when the pedal is slightly depressed.
