03 40 Alpine Coach Brake Pedal Not returning.

My brake pedal does not want to return the last 1/4 " unless you manually pull back on it. Booster pump runs and brake lights stay on till you pull back.
Is it the return spring or switch adjtment?

I would look for points in the mechanism to lubricate.

The brake pedal goes thru the floorboard on the 03 and pivots on a rod in front of the master cylinder--not much can go wrong.....lub the zerk on the pivot shaft and check for freeplay, check to make rug/carpet not interfering with pedal travel, check the pivot return spring for tension, check to make sure the brake switch is functioning and is in proper position with regard to the pivot point--that's about it......
