Try pumping the brake pedal a few times. It may be sticking. If that turns them off, replace the brake light switch at the brake pedal. HTH. - Jim

ok, I will definitely try to do that. Thank you so much, Jim, for your prompt response. I am female, age 74, and used to do my own tune up on the older cars but the newer ones are a different ball game.
