Brake light switch may need adjustment or replacement if the brake light is indeed on. It's connected via a spring to the brake pedal, push the pin in and see if it effects the light. If the light goes out when you push it in, it needs to be adjusted. If the light flickers and flakes, it needs to be replaced. If you disconnect it and the light is still on, then the problem lies elsewhere, probably in the front MC switch.

Check out the general info stickied post, you'll find a link to the repair manual, download it, it has the repair and troubleshooting procedures for the switch. Luckily it's more electrical than electronic, it's REALLY simple, as all critical components should be.
