May be a broken switch above the pedal, but could also be the Rear Electric Module (REM), which contains the Stop Lamp Relay. Is your shifter able to come out of Park without stepping on the brake? If yes, first, pull the connector(s) off of the brake light switch to see if this puts them out. If yes, replace the switch. If no, you may need to replace the REM.
Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6053280-lights_out_lights_not_out_bulbs_ok . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

You have a brake light switch that is located on the upper part of the brake pedal arm. (up behind lower dash) This may be out of adjustment or bad.

1997 f150 brake lights stay on even with engine off


The brake lights normally work without the key.

If they stay on all the time, it's probably either a stuck/misadjusted/broken brake light switch.

Ford e250 brake lights stay on


If the lights only stay on when key is in ignition, your central brake lights (or one of the lights) are out. The other lights stay on as a warning that the centrals(or other brake light/s) are needing replaced.

I have a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado and the lights stay on when my brake controller is plugged in, even if the vehicle is off and there are no keys. What could be wrong


I know that chevy vehicles in 04 and up have the lights stay on for about 1 minute until they turn off. Now if your lights stay longer than a minute then you can have the wires cross at some juncture
