brake lights stay on....

Hi guys.
On a 1990 Z71, the brake lights are staying on.
I checked the brake light switch, and it's working.

This is my son's truck. I think it all started when he had to lower the steering column to install a new brake booster.

I figure something got pinched or something, but can't find the problem.
I checked the brake light switch wires, and when it's depressed, only one has juice, so that leaves out one of those wires being pinched.

oddly enough, on the fuse box, the fuse for the brake lights doesn't get juice until the key is on. can someone explain this? odd, because you don't need the key on to make brake lights work. BTW, the brake lights are staying on regardless of what position the key is in.

anyway, any help is appreciated
