I assume your brake lights are staying on, when you turn off the car. This is usually caused by a little rubber part on the brake pedal lever breaking Usually around the 140 thousand mile mark. This rubber part is basically a pad that depresses the brake light switch. the part is cheap, under a dollar, and will probably have to be ordered from a dealer. Just tell them about your issue and the rubbe part, and they can find it and order it. Installation was easy for me because I'm kinda small and can fit under the pedals ok. took me 2 minutes to replace. just take your time.

I have a 2001 zx2, and there was a spare rubber piece litterally on the brake pedal. Just an inch or so away. But other than that, the hardest part of this repair is definitely getting the piece ordered.

If you turn the engine off the gearshift will move easily. Its the brake light switch. It's a multi-switch that also operates the gearshift lock solenoid.

The brake switch on a 1999 Corolla should be on the top of the brake pedal arm. If the switch goes bad, then the brake lights might stay on, or not come on at all.
