The brake light switch is either worn or poorly adjusted. The switch is under the dashboard. The brake pedal mechanism SHOULD cause the switch to trip when you touch the brake pedal. You may need to replace the switch, but the good news is, it's not too difficult, just a couple hand tools. you talking about the tail lites or the dash lite? if its the dash lite your emergency brake might be slightly engaged.

If your attempting to install a DVD player (in dash) in your car and need to bypass the brake light wire in order to be able to play it while driving its not too difficult. the brake light wire goes hot when the brake is applyied (to power the brake light itself) the DVD player uses this wire to know when the brake light is on or off based on if the wire is "hot" or not. simply splice the wire into a constant power source like the main power wire to your in dash unit.

the brake light could be on for 2 reasons, first check your brake fluid level under the hood and make sure it is above the "min" line. if that's full enough, you will have to take off the cover around your emergency brake and there will be a small bolt with a rounded top under the brake lever. make sure it is at the right height when you pull up on the ebrake.
