My brake lights won't go off until I pull the fuse under the hood. Brake sensor is fine. (2 answers)

The shop said both sensors for the brakes work so it must be electrical. I took my truck to a dealer and they said it was an all around sensor, which the first shop said worked. They want $620. for the part. Does that sound right? Sounds way too expensive to me.

1998 Chevrolet S10 Reviews

I bought this truck as a simple working tool and transport. It has been twelve years now and it has done all I ever asked it to do. I have always been a Chevy man. When GM gets back to making more of these I'll buy another. I call it my little mule.
