long story short , my brake light switch stopper fell out , brake lights were on permanently even with the key out I didn't notice and the battery went flat.. charged it up and put a new stopper behind the brake light switch , but now the brake lights still stay on. checked the switch and it closes the circuit when depressed, its still acting as if the brake light switch is in the out position! I really don't know what else to check. and obviously cant drive it with the brake lights stuck on ! really hope someone can help and I'll buy a few beers for whoever can suggest a fix!
