headscratch Brake light won't go off?

I have noticed lately that my brake light won't go off? It stays on even when the brakes aren't depressed and the headlight is off? When i push the brakes nothing happens? Any idea's on what the cause is? Everything else seems fine?

check the rear brake switch. It's the most vulnerable of the 2 switches and yours may be jammed with debris or the bracket could be bent.

The switch that turns the brake light on.

Take a look at 21-9 and 21-10 in the service manual. If you can't get the light to go off by messing with the right hand lever or the brake pedal, pull the plugs and do a continuity check on both switches. The one thats made up will be your problem. I know the rear one is adjustable, but I have never messed with the one on the front brake.
