Hi, my Mom's '96 Altima has an issue where the brake lights are always on. I noticed the brake stopper on the brake pedal had broken and fallen off, so I replaced it. Now the switch is fully depressed when the brake is released, yet the lights remain on!

Any ideas on what I should check next? Seems strange that at the same time the brake stopper broke, something else broke which is causing the lights to stay on. I'm curious if I could just be overlooking something simple.

Thanks!

Maybe the brake switch is bad? Try unplugging it and see if the brake lights go off. If they do, it's probably the brake switch. You can confirm by component testing the switch; install a continuity tester or ohmmeter on the leads of the switch and operate the plunger to see if the switch is working properly or not.
