Great, thanks!Ok. If the brake lights were stuck on, it does sound like the problem will be the Brake Light Switch. It's located at the top of the brake pedal arm under the driver's side dash. To gain access, the driver's side lower insulator panel will first need to be removed. Inspect the electrical connector and wire harness for any loose, broken or damaged wires. Inspect the switch mount and contact points for any broken or misaligned parts. If the visual inspection checks ok, sounds like the switch is going to need to be replaced. Unplug the electrical connector and remove the mounting bolt to remove.
