Was getting a brake light indication on the upper annunciator panel a few days ago, so replaced the deck brake light. Now, I don't get the light on the annunciator panel, but the brake lights stay on for the entire time the car is running... Brake pedal depressed or not.

For what it's worth, I recently installed the AC Schnitzer pedal accents. I believe the sensor for brake light activation is at the top of the assembly, not the bottom where the pedal is, so I think this should be a non-issue.

Any suggestions?
