brake lights staying on continuously

I have a 2000 528 and the brake lights stay on continuously. just had the brake booster repaired but don't think that would be the problem. could a faulty brake switch cause this problem. thanks for any help

Start by checking your fuses and your wiring. Then check the actual brake light connectors in the lights as well.

My 2000 528 was doing that too, had some other issues going on as well. It happened to be the ignition switch was going out.
