It is most likely a failed brake light switch located at the brake pedal. Remove the wiring connector at the switch and see if the lights now go off, if so the switch is bad.

Thsi is a simple repair. If you have never done one before it might take a little bit more time then a pro, but you can do it. Go to your auto parts store (I know Auto Zone has break downs and how to's that they can print off for you, I don't work there but they are helpful.) Also check Auto Zone's web site and see if they carry the part or call it might be a dealers item. Also check the junk yard you might get lucking I picked up switches for $1 or $2 bring a meter to check if the switch is good. I hope this information is anough to get you started. Once you see the switch you can do it. Let me know how it go's. Good luck
