ther is a switch in side the car on the brake pedel more than likely it is sticking if you lift the pedel the lights should go out ==More Info== The previous respondant is correct about the brake switch. It is located under the dash, behind the brake pedal's arm that comes down from the arm's pivot point above. The switch has a little spring-loaded plunger that the arm presses "in" when you put your foot on the brake. The switch has a threaded portion on the body with a nut you can loosen. I believe the switch has "disconnect-able" wires so you can pull it out for inspection, repair, or replacement. The plunger may be dirty or roughened up in which case you can clean and recheck for smooth action before returning it to service in your vehicle. If you have a continuity tester, you can check for continuity as the plunger goes in and out to make sure it's working right. There is one other possiblity, the body of the switch may be adjustable to make sure the brake pedal is going to be able to press it in when you brake and let it out all the way when you take your foot off. The threaded part of the switch may allow adjustment of the switch so the plunger is fully extended when the brake arm is at its normal return position. If the pedal is still pushing on the plunger when your foot off the pedal, then you may be able to adjust the body of the switch so that the plunger is allowed to fully extend when there is no force on the pedal. This will allow the switch to "open" and turn the brake lights off. ther is a switch in side the car on the brake pedel more than likely it is sticking if you lift the pedel the lights should go out
