You have a "Hot Wire" some place that is shorting out. You need to start following the wires to see if you can find the short.
Remove the Brake Light assembly and start there, working your way forward. Good Luck and Remember.

Remove bulbs and check sockets for short to ground Check wiring for short
I have a 1983 GMC Sierra it has no dash,tail lights an brake lights are very dim
Check stop light fuse Check bulbs double filamented smaller for brake lights Check the operation of the stop light switch Check socket for corrosion
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
Check the fuse for the brake lights. It should be marked stop/haz on the fuse box cover.
Brake Lights that Will Not Turn OffAlthough it's possible there could be other reasons, the most common causes for brake lights to stay on continuously include:The brake light [if mounting position is adjustable] is out of adjustment, orThe brake light switch contacts are fused ["welded"/melted] together, orThe brake light switch is otherwise defective.
Check stop light switch at top area or brake pedal - maybe damaged when column broken
98 sierra1500 4x4 all lights work excepttail lights fuses are good bulbs are new
Yes, it has brake lights.
earth leak or fuse if you are certain the sender switch at top of brake pedal is ok.Put tester on circuit to establish feed or no feed
push in the e brake pedal 1 click
has anyone checked the fuses and bulbs?
check under the hood of the vehicle...there should be a rectangular or square box with fuses there...there is also one under the dash of the vehicle. If it isn't the fuse check the bulbs... check the switch under the dash where the brake pedal rests in may need adjusting, broken, or just stuck in and not popping out when you apply the brake. Push it in and out severel times and see if the lights come on.
Yes they indeed have brake lights...
Then the brake lights are out but the middle one still lights up. (:
my 98 suburban did the same thing. when i changed my headlight switch that turns them off and on, they started working again.
check the fuse, brake lights have their own, & check the brake switch at the top of the brake pedal
are you sure it is the brake lights and not the tail lights. if it is the brake lights you most likely have a short some where. go to a auto eletrican It is the brake lights which turn on. Short in the switch or the wiring?
on the brake pedal under the dash is a brake light switch. that when you depress the brake it turns your lights on. you might wanna check that
Although both signal lights and stop lights are within the same lens, they operate on different wiring. The bulb will usually have two filaments, one for stop and one for signal. If the brake lights are not working, the problem is probably a blown fuse or a faulty break light switch.
They're on a different circuit. The parking and dash lights go through the headlight switch. It could be the switch, a bad wire/connector or a burned fuse.
No , the rear brake lights do not turn on when you use your parking brake , just the brake light on your dash is supposed to come on
Fuse or 4 way flasher unit there are 2 flashers on for turns one for 4 ways
they are not brake lights they are fog lights and they turn on because it is for the car behind to see you
the brake lights are on a separate cuircut,if your brake lights are staying then it will be a fault with the brake light switch. the switch is located under dash,and will be on or very close to brake pedal.
