I have a 2000 SEL with adj. pedals, and the brake lights come on sometimes when the car is parked and run down my battery!!

What does this sound like to you guys?

My first thought would be the stop light switch. Any other ideas?

They don't stay on right after the car is parked. For example, I have parked in the driveway for the night then come back out in the morning to see the brake lights on. (They were not on when I went inside). This has happened twice so far and run my batt down :(

Ya, there is a recall on those brake switches. I've done dozens of them. We replace the switch with a different design one, and cut off and replace part of the wiring harness and connector that goes to it. Should fix you right up.
