When the brake lights are staying on, this will be a problem with the Brake Light Switch. It's located under the driver's side dash, mounted to the top of the brake pedal arm. Inspect the switch mount and contact points for any broken or misaligned parts. Inspect the electrical connector and wire harness for any loose, broken or damaged wires. If the visual inspection checks ok, sounds like plunger for the switch has seized and the switch will need to be replaced.
