HI there, This would be covered under the recall, because the brake lights are staying on. I am sure the issue is the brake light switch. Please give me a moment to look up the wiring diagram and locate the stop light fuse. You can pull it and the lights will go out so the battery doesn't drain on you.

In the fuse box under the hood, there should be a fuse labeled STLamp. Pull this fuse and the lights will all go out.
