Default Brake light won't shut off (RAM 1500)

Iím new to the forum and have a problem with my truck.
I just bought an 03 Ram 1500 4x4 Quad Cab in July 09, (first truck) and have an issue with the brake lights.
They will not turn off. Once I step on the brake pedal for the first time they stay on all the time. I have to plug the trailer light adaptor in and cross the ground to the brake light pin to short them out to turn them off.
What Iíve done so far is cleaned all the grounds I could find under the hood, 4 of them. Cleaned with WD40 the connections from the main harness connector under the driver side wheel well and the light connectors. I have also removed and tested the brake switch under the dash as well as installed a new one to test it, all with the same result.
Any ideas as to what the issue might be
