    I had the same problem with my Ford Ranger. The brake light switch on the brake peddle was stuck on.
    Hope this helps.

    Try spraying the brake light switch with WD-40 first. If that doesn't fix the situation, then:

    . Remove the under-dash panel.
    . Locate the switch near the top of the brake pedal and disconnect the wiring harness.
    . Remove the switch retaining pin and the white nylon washer from the brake pedal pin, then slide the brake light switch and pushrod off far enough for the outer hole of the switch to clear the pin.
    . Slide the switch down to remove it.
