If the switch activated by your brake for your 1994 Nissan sentra brake lights and tail lights is broken and your lights stay on when the engine is off how can you fix it?

There is a switch just above the brake pedal that is called the brake stoplight switch. When the brake pedal is released, it stops the brake lights from illuminating. Check to make sure the switch is contacting the brake pedal stop where it should. A short term method of not killing the battery would be to unplug the connector to the switch and get a new one. It won't have brake lights when disconnected so I don't recommend driving with it like that. replace the broken switch

Every now and then the brake lights turn on and the brake pedal is not being depressed whats going on?

Sticking Brake LightsI had this very same problem when I owned a Nissan 300zx. There is a switch in front of the brake pedal that when the brake pedal is pressed the metal part of the pedal presses down on a little button which turns the brake lights on when pressing the pedal. What I did was I got under the dash, took a flashlight and put a little piece of tape in between the pedal and the switch. It acted as a cushion because the pedal wasn't pushing down on the switch as it was pushing on the tape and when I pressed on the pedal the lights would come on but the tape pushed the pedal back to shut the switch off. If you want to avoid all this consider having your brake pedal adjusted. If your brake lights come on still consider having your cars wiring checked out.

Under the dash where the brake pedal rests there should be a switch that the pedal hits when it is released, push it in with your hand, if the lights go out then it needs to be adjusted out toward the pedal by loosening the jam nuts on either side and threading them back. If the lights dont go out then that switch will need to be replaced.
