Cool e65 e66 brake lights stay all the time, pls help!

Hello, this my 1st post on the forum,
But i have 03 745li ,and i really need all of your help, ive looked all over the forum for answers, still need some assistance,
Recently my brake lights stayed on while i drive my car, my fiance told me the 3rd brake light flicked when i pressed the brake, but the other 2 stayed on, she thought i was riding brakes.

So far I've checked the fuses, and installed a new brake light switch, still not fixed, so pls can someone help me out.

Sounds like Light Module needs replaced .

The light module is located below the drivers
side of the instrument panel, to the left of the
steering column and behind the sheet metal
support for the dashboard.

To remove the module it is not necessary to
remove the drivers side knee airbag.

Best bet would be to pull codes, there's gotta be a fault code showing. Find an independent European shop that has the software like INPA.
