Those that are having this problem.. Remove your front brake lever and reset the plastic pin "switch" sounds like the levers were removed and not put back in properly and the switch is being held closed..

Even if the front and rear plugs are unplugged this "switch" will still cause the brake light to light up..... Thanks

If you are unplugging the switches and you still have brake light then you have a wiring problem. You are bypassing the switches and finding out the taillight is the problem..

CA lights are known for the ground wire coming off the board. No relief strain on the wiring. Solder can pull off the board. T

the whole footpeg assembly on the left and right side of the bike,
that you rest your feet on when you ride. those are referred to as rear sets.

yea its a switch problem. the switch to which the rear brake spring is attached to, can be adjusted.

Just want to share my experience. i had the same problem with the brake light staying on all the time even after i disconnected both switches.
After taking the whole bike part i find out i made a very stupid mistake.
While installing my brake lever i pinched the wires for the front brake switch keeping the brake on all the time.
Maybe this will save some of you the trouble it caused me!!

I just wanted to chime in and thank all of you for these types of threads. Saved me a major headache because I thought I had some faulty wiring somewhere (high sided a few months ago) since my rear light would stay on even with the front brake disconnected. Turns out the brake spring on the right rearset that I replaced wasn't adjusted correctly.

im having a problem where when i grab my front break, my break light just flashes on really quick then just turns off... i find that if i grab my break ever so slightly and hold it, the break light will stay on, but once i squeeze or put any more pressure on the break, the light turns off. any ideas???? rear break works fine.

Bad switch or aftermarket lever non compatible with brake switch I am guessing... I have a flickering brake light which for some time used to be steady after I switched lever to cheap chinas..my lever return spring also has weakened so it could be that...I didn't get around to fixing it though....

Thanks for the info! I had a brake light issue and I thought it was related to my yellow box ground issue, turns out it was the rear brake switch.

Lots of good info in this thread!
