The 2001 Buick Century brake light switch is located beneath the dashboard, on the drivers side. The brake light switch should be labeled as such.
where is brake light switch
Your light stays on cause ur pedal is loose and is contacting the switch. To prove this have somebody watch the light and lift up on the brake pedal, it should go out. You will have to tighten the bolt at the top where the pedal hinges, or like i did istall a light spring to pull the pedal back up.
There are several reasons why an AWD light comes on in a Buick Rendezvous. A few reasons could be burned oil, gear oil is hot, or even a burned out clutch.

Where is the backup light switch on a 2002 buick century?
You can try to reset your brake light switch by unplugging the brake light switch and plugging it back in. If that does not solve your problem you will need to replace the brake light switch.
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. Go to:http://www.2carpros.com/first_things/no_brake_lights.htm for the 4 page analysis. 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 any outgoing brake light wires, the turn signal switch has probably failed. This is a Buick design issue because keeping your foot on the brake or if the brake switch sticks keeping the brake lights on, the circuit will fail due to amperage overload.
Most likely it is either the brake light switch, under the dashboard, connected to the brake pedal or the turn signal switch inside the steering column.
Have you ever stepped on the brake when the flashers are flashing and see how they stop flashing? So yes the circuit does go thru the flasher, so replace that and see.
