When the brake lights are on reach down and pull UP on the brake pedal. If lights go out may just need to adjust switch. Very easy operation. I'm a little puzzled that the problem would be there with key on, but not off.

Do as Tow Guy suggested. You can also pull out the switch from the pedal area and work it by hand. If it works fine, it's an adjustment.

Even if you guess, a stoplight switch is cheap if you are wrong.

Could have a short in the turn signal switch. On an S10, the taillamp, turn signal and brake lamp are all one bulb

Too bad all the posts can't be that easy to diagnose; but then it wouldn't be as much fun. LOL.
