    Switch above the brake pedal needs adjusted would be my guess.

    If you have some warranty left, use it.

    ok i figured out exactly what happened. now i need to know what to do about it. i went the extra mile and armoralled my pedals (lol). My foot slipped off one time, just a little bit. My foot hit this switch.

    The switch has some play in it. When I move it forward, the lights stay on, when i move it backwards, they shut off. Its so difficult to get to, I don't think theres an adjustment or anything ... is there? Maybe I cracked a plastic mount to it or something??

    It looks like you bent the bracket back.
