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?
