How do you adjust the brake light switch? on 2004 Mercury Monterey

When I press the break lightly the brake lights come on and stay on. If I don't check it when I park it for the night the lights stay on all night until the battery dies. seems to be worse when it is cold out.

CK YOUR BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH THATS LOCATED ON YOUR BRAKE PEDAL ARM. ITS EITHER STICKING OR OUT OF ADJUSTMENT

I looked at it but didn't see any way to adjust it. There isn't any spring to return the peddle all the way up off the switch. The switch is located between the peddle arm bolt and the push rod for the master cylinder.
