    There is a rubber grommet that may have fallen out of the brake pedal.. The brake light switch has a plunger that hits the grommet. If that grommet is gone then there will be nothing to depress the plunger on the switch which will make the lights stay on. Get a flashlight and look up your brake pedal and find the switch.. it should have at least 2 wires going to it. It will have a plunger on it and that plunger will rest against a grommet when the brake pedal is not depressed.. Make sure that grommet is still in place. It is a simple part to install and they car very inexpensive.. It will have to be purchased from the dealership. They usually are not available aftermarket.. Good luck
