Can you pull up on the pedal and make the brakes liights go out? Look for the switch down at the brake pedal and make sure it's adjusted properly. Also I'm not sure on your car but sometimes there is a return spring on the brake pedal that pulls the pedal back when you take your foot off the brake. I can see something happening to the switch or spring when the steering column was replaced.

This is the same advise I'd give as I too can see something happening to the switch in a column replacement.
