Hey there, thanks for the question.

This is usually an easy fix. There are two switches above the brake pedal. The ASCD cancel switch and the stop lamp switch. Check to make sure the brake lamps are not stuck on when not pressing the brake and make sure the brake lamps work normally. If they do, then you likely have a faulty ASCD cancel switch is all, or it needs to be adjusted. If you notice a brake lamp issue then it's likely the stop lamp switch causing the problem.
