    Janice,
    The brake light switch (brake pedal position sensor) is under the dash, very close to the brake pedal, in fact the brake pedal will physically contact it when you depress the pedal.
    Good luck, with this and with your husband. My father is going through a situation with cancer and I know how tough it is.

    Janice,
    Are the brake lights stuck on? Or are they not working?
    Some of these switches are adjustable so there could be an issue with the adjustment.
