Alecia, Sounds like the switch near the brake pedal is sticking. Check the switch and the pedal height adjustment. I know it sounds complicated but it really isn't. This problem should be fixable with adjustments to the switch and/or brake pedal. . John In Montana

I had the same problem. There is a plastic piece on the brake pedal that pushes a solenoid when the pedal returns to the upright position. Its a round white piece about 1/8 inch thick. If it is completely missing you will only see the hole where the piece fits.

As a quick easy and cheap fix I simply superglued a penny over the hole. Not the best looking fix but it helped keep my battery from draining.
