Need to know WHICH model Peterbilt in order to answer this.
Most likely the brake switch. Not for sure with this model, but brake switches are almost always easily accessibile being located somwhere in line with the brake pedal.
No. All Peterbilt models have different-shaped hoods.

In what make and model vehicle?
Regardless of vehicle make, model, or age, when vehiclcle brake lights remain on when the brake pedal is not depressed, the cause is that the linkage between the brake system and the switch is improperly adjusted, OR less commonly, a defective switch.
Different models of Peterbilt have different headlight assemblies. We need to know which model you're referring to.

Changing the brake light switch is a relatively simple task, and you should try to do it yourself. The brake light switch is a small electronic device located at the top of the brake pedal (inside the car on the floor where your feet go). It is about 3 inches long, has wires coming out of one side, and a plunger on the other that moves in and out when you step on the brake. First, unplug the brake light switch cables. You'll have to pinch the sides and wiggle it out. You will need to use a 1/2 inch socket or spanner to remove the L shaped metal bracket above the brake light switch, just in front of the brake pedal and clutch pedal. (Actually, I did this but it may not have been necessary. See if you can perform the next step without taking this out.) The brake light switch is held in by two plastic pins. You'll need to turn it like a bottle cap and gently pull out until it comes out out. This is your culprit. On 1998, 1999, and early model 2000 beetles, the brake light switch is a two wire device. On late model 2000 and 2001 beetles, the brake light switch is a four wire device. To put in the new brake light switch, put it into the same slot the old one just came out of, and rotate it until it is in the same position as the previous one. Reattach the L shaped metal bracket above the brake light switch. Plug the cables back into the brake light switch, making sure they are firmly seated. Be careful of the clutch pedal switch. It has a similar switch to the brake light switch. If it comes out, just put it back in. The clutch pedal switch is used to make sure you have the clutch pedal pressed down when you are starting the car, otherwise it won't start. Good luck.
