Here is the solution: there is a plastic tab on the floor of your car. locate the switch located at the beginning of the arm that hold the brake pedal. the switch uses the pressure to keep the lights off. However, your pedal is now missing the piece of plastic that fell on the floor. Finally, crazy glue it to the arm of the brake (to touch the switch when the brake is released) or place a nut and bolt with the head of the bolt touching the switch.
PS: There is no need to remove your switch at all. I just did this to fix my fiancee's 95 Corolla.
