I have a 2004 GMC Envoy XL. 2 out of 3 rear brake lights stay on when the tail lights are on. We have checked power and the power turns on/off while pressing the brake at the brake lights, but when we plug the cable into the circuit boards they stay on. We have tried 2 new circuit boards, new bulbs, checked the fuse and also put in a new brake switch. Could it be the brake switch is not adjusted right?

After shuting off my 1997 Subaru Impreza, the brake lights stay on and drain the battery. The brake light switch at the brake pedal had a melted plastic plunger which closed the swith and allowed the lights to stay on. I replaced the switch with a new one and it melted too.
