Hi. I have a 1998 VW New Beetle. My brake lights stay illuminated when I'm not using the brakes. I have removed the brake light switch but they are still illuminated to replace it but they are still illuminated so I'm not sure that's the problem. What do you think?

Did the lights stay on when you unplug to switch?

Make sure you have the correct bulbs are in the sockets. You will need a test light or multimeter to check this problem. If you unplug the brake switch the light should go out. Check the voltage on both wires at the brake light switch. One should have power and one should have ground. Remove the rear bulbs and check for power and ground at the sockets.
