Pull up on your brake pedal. If it then don't go out unplug the switch that touches the brake pedal arm. If it then goes out replace the switch.

Will it go off with switch unplugged?

I have a Mercury villager that did the same thing. turns out that there is a hole on the brake pedal and the switch would go through it instead of engaging. I put a nut and bolt in the hole and adjusted the switch, it now works like it is supposed to.

Fix it

In the "hole" on the brake pedal arm, there WAS a plastic "button" that, when in place protruded enough to push the brake light switch into the off position. In my case, that plastic button had broken off. I wedged a screw driver betweent he pedal arm and the switch that worked to turn the brake lights off - until I can get back out in the DAYLIGHT to try to find a machine bolt to replace the plastic "button."
