I have a 96...

I have a 96 mercury sable and my brake lights will not shut off

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the brake fluid? How's the level and when was it last changed?

No I have not checked the actual brake fluid but im not sure how that would effect the break lights from not going off

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sable yourself? What have you tried so far?

Im trying to do this myself and people have said it was the switcher but that was replaced last year and should not need to be replaced again

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Yes I need to know if this car has a break bumper and if so where is it so i can replace it. A lot of videos I watched said that was a common cause for break lights to not go off.
