MY BRAKE LIGHTS WILL NOT TURN OFF

1993 Hyundai Elantra • 4 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 175,000 miles

1993 Hyundai Elantra. Just recently I discovered that my brake lights will not turn off. When I lift the brake (from underneath) just a little, the lights will turn off. But, when the brake is left in the normal resting position, the lights stay on. Is it possible that the spring that pulls that the brake up while not in use is worn out and that there is not enough tension to pull it high enough to where the lights won't turn on? If so, do I need to order that part from my dealer?

It sounds as if the brake light switch needs to be adjusted. It is located on the brake pedal leakage up under the dash.
