The brake lights on my corolla won't turn off. I have checked under the hood and located the brake switch but can't tell if it's stuck or is supposed to be that way. The switch is blue in color and I tried to jiggle and press it just in case but nothing. Might it be something else other than the brake switch? If it's still the brake switch, do you have a diagram that would show how it's supposed to look like? The cost to fix it is $100 and I am not paying that if I can do it myself. Thank you so much

If all the brake lights are on and will not shut off, then the brake switch is the likely issue.

Basically, we need to disconnect it and check for an open circuit across the switch. If you don't have this, then the switch is stuck.
