My brake lights stay on all the time. How do I get them to release?

Hello and welcome to the forum.
You may want to check to see if it's the front or rear switch.
If you disconnect the front brake switch and the lights remain on, you may want to check the rear and you may need to readjust the switch.

I concur with the previous post. First, push your brake lever forward and/or your brake pedal up...if either of these actions turn the light out, a simple adjustment on the pedal or replacement of the bushing in the lever may be in order.
Keep the rubber side down.

If you put your ear close you should be able to hear the front microswitch click as you operate the lever

I have always used Servisol on switches

If at first you don't succeed, hide the evidence.
