Okay, So my buddy just bought an 05 colorado and like the title says, all three brake lights come on and stay on when the headlights are turned on. When the headlights are off the brake lights work normally. Could this be a faulty brake light switch?

Is it just headlights or is it also with parking lights?

OK that makes a little more sense how that could happen as the parking light circuit is connected to the tails but not the headlight circuit.

I'd be looking at the harness connections at the tail lights. The parking circuit is backfeeding to a brake light somehow maybe due to a failed ground. If you hit the brakes with the lights off, do the front parking lights also light up?

Also check the bulbs. I once had one short out in the bulb where the filament post melted and shorted to the other.
