Try hookin your toe under the pedal and lifting it. If that works, the switch is out of adjustment. I would have thought it the contacts were corroded the lights wouldn't work at all, rather than be stuck on?
Re-reading your original post, I suspect that we may have taken a wrong track. Do you mean that the lights on the rear of the vehicle stay on all the time or just that the lights on the mimic diagram on the dash display stay on ?
If it's the former then the guys have got it correct, switch adjustment or pedal return spring. If not then it indicates that a brake light bulb ( rear of vehicle ) has blown or is close to doing so. I tend to always replace bulbs in pairs 'cause the mimic can be a bit oversensitive. Keep the OK one as a spare in the tool kit for future use.
