1993 Toyota Corolla electrical problem

The brake lights are on constantly, whether or not the key is in the ignition. If the pedal is forced upward, the lights will go out. Cannot tell for sure, but it seems to have happened suddenly. After a day of work, I came back to where the car was parked and the battery was dead. The person who gave me a jump said it was still drawing quite a bit, and we couldn't see anything that was on. No dome light, the car doors were closed, nothing appeared on. When I got it home, and parked it in the garage where it was darker, I saw the two tail lights and the center brake light all on, despite the car engine not being on, or the key in the ignition.
Do you

It's likely the same problem. I do now see remnants of the plastic part on the floor. However, the diagram is no longer available on the earlier post. Is it possible to re-post the diagram?
