Question about 1993 Harley Davidson FLSTF Fat boy
Normally there is a switch attached to the brake pedal which turns on the break light. You can find it with close visual inspection.Check its attachment wire, spring and if required replace the switch

SOURCE: brake light stays on
hand break switch was broken (inside the wire housing) not allowing the hand break lever to deactive, therefore causing the brake system to stay on.

there is a nyliner ( nylon bushing) around the pin on the pivot of the lever. start by replacing that- it is very inexpensive and easy to replace. while you have the lever off check the brake switch for proper function- it should switch on and off easily with just a simple push and release of a small screwdriver or punch.

it has a brake light switch connected in the line with a T connector between the rear master cylinder and the rear caliper,sounds like the switch is stuck,locate the switch and unplug it to see if it goes out,if so prolly faulty switch unless caliper is stuck

Ok, the brake light is turned on when the brake lever is pulled. The switch is actually located in the right switch housing along with the right turn signal switch, starter switch, and throttle. It's simple button switch. When the lever is pulled, it pivots on the pivot pin and small tang on the bottom side to the lever swings FORWARD releasing the swith turning on the light. When you let go the tang swing backwards depressing the button turning off the light.
Loosen the bolts that hold your front brake master cylinder to the handlebar and slide the master cylinder back towards the switch houslng as far as you can. They should be touching. If the light still won't turn off, you'll have to take the right hand switch housing apart and replace the small switch.
