The problem is with the brake light switch which is located underneath the dashboard attahched to the pedal support bracket. It is either broken or needs adjusting so that the plunger is fully depressed when the pedal is in it's normal resting position.

That being said, if you replaced the bulbs recently and afterwards is when you noticed the problem check the bulb numbers and make sure that they are 1157's because even though they might look identical there are a fe different types of bulbs, some of which can, in this situation, touch both relay contacts causing your problem.
