Default how to turn off brake lamp

Hi, I got a 1999 Acura TL. I got new brakes a week ago after the brake lamp
turned on. But, now even though the brakes are new, the brake lamp light is
still there. Can any one help me turn the brake lamp light off?

Thanks a lot !!

David

Check your brake fluid level and make sure the park brake is all the
way off and its switch isn't stuck. Then go yell at the guy who worked
on your brakes.

The brake light goes on when the fluid level is low and when the parking
brake is not fully released.

If neither of those is the problem, then check that the wires going into the
master cylinder lid are not pinched between the lid and the reservoir. It
is easy when putting the lid on the brake reservoir to get the wires that
come from the fluid level sensor pinched when you twist it into the catches.
This happened on my '00 TL about six months ago & the light came on several
weeks later. I took off the brake reservoir lid and straightened out the
wires and that fixed it.
