Did you check to see if the switch is depressed when the brake peddle is all the way back? If you replaced the switch, yet did not adjust it correctly, the lights will stay on. The switch when depressed cuts the electricity to the brake lights.

Does the brake arm touch the switch and push in the arm on the switch? How about the mounting brackets? Is this your switch?

Mine is the first switch yet is threaded all the way down not making good contact to turn it off how can I adjust the arm?

When the brake peddle is all the way up, not being touched, The break peddle arm should be making contact with the peddle, cutt9ng off the electrical connection. When you apply pressure on the peddle pushing the arm down, the switch should lose contact with the peddle and that then makes the connection. If the switch is not touching or needs to be adjusted closer to the peddle/arm to make contact, do it.
