Change them. If you do not know how, take them to a mechanic. It can be as simple as a fuse. If not, check brake light switch. The switch can be attached to the pedal under the dash or it can be attached to the hydraulic brake line, depending on your vehicle. It can also be a grounding problem, meaning that the ground wire to the tail lights can be broken, unplugged or there can be a bad connection to vehicle ground. It can also be the turn signal switch or wires leading to the turn signal swith.
It is important to have working brake lights on a vehicle. If the brake lights are not working a person should first check the fuse, bulbs and at last the wiring.

If none of the brake lights are working i would suspect the brake switch at the brake pedal.
There should be a fuse for the brake lights. If the fuse is good always check the ground wire.

How about a malfunctioning brake light switch
Bulbs blown, or corroded sockets.
Your brake lights are out too! Replace the fuse.
The brake lights and tail lights are separate wiring systems. Even some of the bulbs may have two separate bulbs in the same glass housing. If the bulbs are in fact working, then the next step would be to test the brake switch under the dash. When you depress the brake pedal the switch is pushed creating a connection to turn on the brake lights.
BEHIND THE BRAKE PEDAL
Could be the brake light switch or fuse.
Please re-phrase your question; it appears you are saying the brake lights come on when you push the brake pedal and the lights are working (normal operation). If the lights are staying on after you release the pedal, then the problem is with th brake light switch (sticking). Thanks Malcolm
