The button on the "switch" isn't releasing completely when I let my foot off the brake pedal which is causing the bake lights to stay on. I rolled electrical tape around the steel plate located behind the break pedal building up the width of the contact surface. It isn't the switch that's bad, so save your 1 $13.00 and try some tape.
