Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
If the brake light switch above the pedal was sticking, then all three brake lights would be staying on.
If it is only the axillary third brake light, than that is a bit unusual.
I am trying to image things like current being wired to the lights first and grounding at the switch. Then if the wire from the 3rd light was squashed and shorting, it would then only effect the one light.
But this is unlikely.
I would suggest removing the wires from the brake light switch, to see if it goes out then.
