Do you mean the brake lights at the rear of thee car are remaining on all the time, if so I would think the brake light switch has failed / shorted. If the brake light on the dash board is remaining illuminated I would check the brake fluid level in the fluid reservoir.
...help! Replacing the center console is possible but how hard is that?? And any ideas about the brake lights? That was the only problem but now I have several problems. Could it be as simple as a fuse?
