Brake lights contiue to stay on on my 1992 Saab Convert.
All of my brake lights continue to stay on even after the carr is turned off. The car lights on not on. This just started and i have never had this problem before. I have to disconnect the battery now which is a pain. Can this be a fuse or a switch?

Hi Chris....When you release the brake pedal, there is a switch underneath the brake pedal that disconnects the circuit to your brake lights causing your brake lights to switch off. Sometimes this brake light switch will go bad and need replacement. For the most part, replacing the brake light switch is very simple. Simply replace the brake light switch with a new one. If your brake light stays on after you turn your car off and you don't want to run your battery down, you may be able to get down underneath the brake pedal and manually pull up on the brake light switch to deactivate it until you can get it repaired. This method will only work if the brake light switch is just sticking.
has to be your brake light switch unusual though normally wired to ignition circuit but saabs normally have side lights wired to come on when ignition is turned on due to swedish laws
try brake light switch at foot pedal or maybe on master cylinder just remove a wire one side of switch if they go out you have your problem
pull the brake pedal up and see if they turn off if they do your brake switch is bad and need a new one but if they not unplug the brake swict located above the brake pedal and if they turn of it is the switch
