528 tail light stays on

My 2000 528 left tail light and parking light will often stay on after shut done. Not sure what actually turns if off because I get back in and hit brakes, work the light switch etc. and the usually go out.
Any ideas on where to start looking? I assume its a short or bad wire.
Thanks

This happened to me also.
It was a bad brake light switch behind the brake pedal.
If you change it be sure it's adjusted right or they will stay on too.
