you should look at the brake light switch---out of adjustment or cracked switch---if a barrel type simply adust this one around until the light goes off~ if a leaf type switch would simply replace that one~ shows both here----if the round one simply turn the nut until the brake lights go off...if one of these plastic "reed" switches replace that one~

Have you tried lifting the brake pedal by hand and see if the light goes off then. Could be just a lazy or worn return spring.

Brake warning light or brake lights? Have you checked your brake fluid level?

if its the brake lights on the rear of the car that stay on it could be the brake light switch.on this car it could also be a bad connection at the bcm.
