see if you can locate the brake light switch up above the foot pedal,usually at the area of end it is a micro switch has a electrical connection so when you push down on the pedal,it closes a small button,sending power to the lights the switch maybe stuck in,or out of adjustment

thanks guys - i got a new switch and replaced it - now brake lights work but only when key is turned on - is that correct - should the brake lights work all the time?
