Your brake switch is stuck-look just above the brake petal, you will see a small switch with a harness and two wires, and possible a spring or sprung button-switch touching the petal shaft-move the plunger up and down, it is probably just hung up or mis-aligned.

My brake light on my dash is constantly on


Look beneath the dash panel at brake pedal assembly. You should see the brake light switch, which completes a circuit to brake lights when you step on the brake pedal. Its likely this switch is malfunctioning. The circuit is closed (power to brake lights) when the brake pedal is not depressed. The circuit is suppose to be open (no power to brake lights) when your foot is off the brake pedal. Unplug the wire connector and unscrew to replace this brake light switch.

As for the knocking sound, is it when the vehicle is in motion? Or even when the vehicle is stopped and idling in park?07060338-db0d-4c14-8a08-ace846c99fb4.jpg

Your brake pedal switch is bad. It's only supposed to turn the brake lights on when you press the brakes. Have that switch replaced asap.

The lights get power from somewhere else, not their control button - you will need to access the wire connector at the left cluster and locate the wire that delivers the power and the status of the grounding connection/bolt (most likely it's corroded). Since the cluster of lights above the rear window are the central brake lights only it means that if you get them constantly on then the brake lights are constantly on . To check for that is easy, just test the brake pedal switch.
