While my 2002 Ford explorer xlt is running or not the brake lights remain on in the rear, all three. I have disconnected the battery, then connected back , lights remain on, What could be the problem.
Already Tried: disconnect battery, search for fuses, on /off alarm system,
Your brake switch is stuck or damaged. It is located under the dash and is mounted on the brake pedal arm. More than likely , having the brake light switch replaced will fix the issue. The part can be bought at most any parts store or on line here: http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/raframecatalog.php?carcode=1377671&parttype=4724&a=FRc1377671k872673
