There is a round piece of soft plastic that sits on the inside of the hardware that controls the brake pedal arm. A white piece directly across from this piece apparently activates or deactivates the brake lights. This blue piece of plastic pushes in that white piece enough to make the brake lights go off. This blue piece has broken down over time. Now, if I can just find a replacement part...
