The sustain pedal is permanently on!
You MAY be trying to use a Roland pedal on an instrument that requires a different one.
The Roland have a normally closed contact where MOST others are normally open.
If you are using Roland equipment, then use of another brand OR a broken cable will cause this as will a shorted cable with other brands.
It looks like you MIGHT have a Technics given that number you posted. Not sure of which polarity pedal you require with that, So you need to test it.
Plug in a regular instrument cable and see if it sustains with nothing at other end. If it does, you need a normally closed one.
