Where is the brake light switch at on a 1996 galant?
I think this switch which is adjustable is located above the brake pedal on a braket with a locknut. May be the bump rubber on the pedal lever is broken.
It' likely, if bulbs are OK that the turn signal switch is burned out. If the switch fails, it won't allow the brake light signal through to the brake light wiring.

See: "(American Car) Both Lower Brake Lights Not Working" To determine if the switch is bad test the incoming and outgoing current. If brake light switch power is present at the turn signal switch but not at…
What do you mean adjust it? Its a switch, its either open or closed. ie, on or off. The "switch" is open or closed but the "switch" has an adjustment on it, a lever to get the travel of the "open or closed switch" correct. Otherwise the brake lights stay on all the time. Can anyone "REALLY" answer the question, and not be a ?@#$%#@?

The brake light switch is under the dashboard, attached to the brake pedal. Try the break pedal, up underneath the dash. This is usually a switch which will open with the lightest pressure on the pedal, which is why some people's brakelights are on all the time. Driving with one foot on the brake pedal means driving with your brake lights on. Which increases the reation time of the the following driver. (End of Sermon.)
The brake warning light on the dash usually indicates either a leak in the brake lines somewhere or air in the lines. Neither is safe and both should be repaired immediately. The warning light should go out in the absence of problems. It is also possible thet the sensor is bad, usually it is located in the proportioning valve not far from the master cylinder. If it's just the e-brake warning light, then the problem…

How do you get to the brake light switch to replace it on a 1998 Chevy C1500 you can't seem to get access to it?
I just had the switch replaced in my 1996 Silverado. They had to disconnect the steering column from the dash to get at the switch. I changed mine on a 1998 3500 in about 10 minutes, brake switch is located on top of steering column, between brake linkage and dash, pop off the black clip with a small screwdriver, disconnect electrical plug and reverse installation.
If your brake lights are on constantly I would suspect they are wired incorrectly or the brake light switch is stuck or has failed. Check the brake light switch first. It is located on the brake pedal lever. Disconnect your battery ground then find the switch and disconnect the leads. See if the plunger moves in and out. If you have an ohm meter see that it goes from infinite resistance to 0 resistance when…
