My brake tail lights stay on while I'm driving and when I step on brake pedal they go off, and within seconds they go back on again. I have a 2006 Chevy Malibu. Do you know what is causing this problem?

Do you
have the same problem?

So your brake warning light or your outside brakes in the rear of the car?

One thing to check is the grounds at G401 and G403.
