Hello, thanks for posting

Do you mean that the brake lights never turn off? They are always on?

Thanks, ***** ***** wanted to make sure I understand, the most likely problem is the brake light switch, it's located under the dash up kind of high, it's a plunger type of switch that makes contact with the brake pedal arm. Has it been replaced yet or anything else tried to correct this?

This just happened earlier today. Too cold and dark now to go out. We are in Montana. our neighbor helped us disconnect the battery until tomorrow.

Can we be in touch with you tomorrow?

No problem at all, take your time I'm online most of the day.

After reconnecting the battery this morning the brake lights were fine. Didn't need to check the brake light switch.

Ok, well let's hope it doesn't happen again, maybe the switch was just sticking considering the cold climate,, if it happens again it will most likely need to be replaced.
