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.

Thank U Quattro Man for responding regarding the brake light switch. Its night now, but will check on this tomorrow, I have two more questions, Could the brake light switch just be stuck, and is their a fuse for the brake lights?

Thank U,

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.
