Yes they do stay on I bought a new well multi function switch because I thought it was the hazard switch causing the problem. I do not know what else unless there is something in the abs system for a wire crossed some where I am really frustrated with this.

Check The Wiring thats goes from the fire wall to the fuse relay center. i hit the wire cluster with my tire and that caused my brake lights to stay on.

My break lights are staying on. I have taken out fueses and the only ones that makes a difference is when I take the turn signal fuese out. I have changed the break switch and the hazard won't work. I think it is the turn signal. The new switch is $170.00. I am going to take apart tomorrow and see if I can check. I will let all know.

check you bulbs in the back. If you keep your foot on the brakes for long periods of time, the contacts in the bulbs will melt and make contact with the park light side of the bulb. disable your DRL and see if the brake lights go out. Also check the grounds at the back of the truck. the tail lights will do all kinds of weird stuff if the ground's not good

Anyone ever come up with anything? Mine is doing this now. Normally I just mash the break pedal a few times and turn the lights on and off like I am sending a secret code. After a few tries this works and they go out. This doesn't happen all the time. Just once in a while.
