Behind and above the brake pedal is a pushbutton switch. When the pedal is not being pushed, the steel part of the pedal arm hold it in, essentially shutting off the brake lights. When you push the pedal the switch is released, turning on the lights. It is very easy to see if you look under the dash. I'm not 100% sure if "won't go off" means they don't turn on, or don't turn off. If they won't turn off, it will drain your battery because that circuit is live even when the ignition is off. Possible causes of your problem are: 1. The switch is misaligned. That would make them stay on all the time. If that's the case, you can turn the lights off by pressing the button directly to see if that's the problem. 2. Switch is disconnected or faulty. Easy to tell with a continuity tester. 3. Blown fuse.
either your fuse is blown or the wiring is bad
Check the brake light switch.
Check the fuse, check the bulbs and check the brake light switch, it should be one of those.

check the multi function switch. I hava a 96 Chevy Monte Carlo and I had the same problem . I changed the multi function switch and the brakes lights now work. the rear brake lights run thru the switch on the turn signal circuit. try it and see.
The hazard switch and the turn signal and brake lights are all incorparated, chances are the 3-1 switch is broke internally check all fuses
It is important to have working brake lights on a vehicle. If the brake lights are not working a person should first check the fuse, bulbs and at last the wiring.
If the brake lights do not work on Chevy Venture van 2000, try to disconnect the brake switch. Then short the two contacts of the connector to check if the brake lights are now working.
You can, but not while it's running. Before you turn your key, you have to set the parking brake, not all the way but just a bit and then start the Blazer and the lights should stay off.
you can find the switch on the back of the brake pedal.

by design the DAY-TIME-RUNNING lights are not intended to be turned off by choice. When you start the 99 blazer with the parking brake on, the DTR lights are off. When you release the parking brake they come on. When you park again and apply the parking brake the DTR lights will stay on, unless you stop the engine and re-start the engine. Since the DTR lights are inter-wired to the regular headlights, they can not be defeated without affecting the regular headlights.
