Hi Steve, unplug the connector above the switch over the brake pedal and see it they go out

I assume that the switch is behind the trim, if so might have to wait till morning. If the lights go out then is the switch broke if not what else could cause this.
Do you think it is a garage job?

Yes just unscrew the cover,,(can give you details if you wish )

then unplug the switch, this is the easiest thing to try first

You could join up again and pull the pedal back, to see if it goes out, if not replace the switch 10 and the other messages will go away on their own
