There is a brake light switch located on the upper back of the brake pedal and sometimes they stick in the on position, its available at any auto parts store.

It's a $3 part at the Honda dealership, but my dad, being the redneck he is, used a washer and duct tape...problem solved. You just need something to plug the hole for the brake switch. I think it's called a stopper pad or something like that.
