Test the brake switch for continuity and if it is showing continuity through the switch it is sticking. Test in both the open and closed positions. Let me know. We can follow up as needed.

I found it had to look from the other side of the steering column the tab on the brake petal has a hole in it that the switch actuator goes thru. the tab will not push the actuator in have you heard of one wearing a hole in the tab also does the steering column swing down for access to the switch

Thanks for the update. Are you able to manually engage the switch to get the lights to work?

I can push the switch the switch with a screwdriver and they go out. I guess the switch wore that hole thru the tab that works the switch I will need to get another petal or weld up that hole thanks for your help

Thanks for the update. Pleasure to help
