Unhappy Brake lights stay on. Replaced brake light sensor! Help!

So, I recently bought a 02 335i which didn't have any brake lights. So I went and bought some but when I hooked them up, the lights came on and will NOT shut off. They stay on when the car is on. They go off when i turn the car off. So I did some research and first thing I did was to replace the brake light switch by the pedal, which I just did. And they still stay on....someone please help!

Make sure the switch is realising all,the way. If the switch is slightly depressed it will keep the lights on, only other thing I could think of would be a,bad ground somewhere.....oh also the break system is integrated in to the ignition switch so if it is off so are the break lights.
