Hi, new member to the forum and to the Dodge truck world.
Earlier this week when I was waiting at a red light I noticed in a reflection that my brake lights were about 1 second slower turning off compared to when I actually released the brake pedal. Being a first time Dodge owner, I didn't think much of it and thought it was a quirk with how Dodges worked with the brake light switch.
I just replaced the pads on the front yesterday and now this has proven to be more than a quirk.
Now whenever I take my foot of the brake pedal, the truck still brakes for that extra second.
I have power adjustable pedals and typically have them fairly far forward. I tried moving them back to see if it caused the same problem and it does.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

my best guess, would be that one of ur calipers are sticking, an actual brake job consists of lubing up the caliper pistons..(found this out the hard way) may be worth checking into, but the light guestion is kinda akward....not really sure bout that
99' CCSB 2500 4x4 cummins 5spd, 4" magniflow turbo back exhaust, fass DDRP lift pump with big line kit, exhaust break, and quadzilla milage max.
You may have to look towards the master cylinder. It may be sticking a little. It would hold the brakes in position a little longer and it may not be pushing the brake pedal back out as fast, even though there's a spring on the pedal. That's where I'd start looking.
