Ranger brake lights stuck ON

I'm driving a '94 Ranger, while my car is getting fixed. I have driven
this truck quite a bit in the past, but it has been sitting idle for a
week or so while my boyfriend is out of town. I drove it home at night
and when I turned it off and got out of the truck the brake lights were
still ON. When I depressed the brake they did not get brighter. I
tried dumb things like turning the lights on and off, pressing the
brake, lifting the brake pedal up with my toe. It was late at night so
I just took two of the fuses out that seemed to make all the associated
lights go out. This morning I fiddled with what I believe to be the
brake pedal switch, thanks to another thread I read in this group. I
jiggled the brake pedal switch, thinking that it might have been stuck
in a depressed position but I didn't want to force anything and cause
further damage. This seemed to fix the brake lights (or maybe it was
just luck) but the light on the rear exterior of the cab will still not
go out as well as the interior light. If this were my vehicle, I would
just take it to my mechanic, who always takes good care of me and my
Honda. But since it is not mine it may take some convincing. Any
suggestions?

Now try turning off the interior lites--probably by rotating headlite
switch c-clockwise a few degrees. May be a separate interior switch that
spins horizontally in dash & merely needs moving to off position. s
