With the key not in the vehicle and the ignition in the locked position check the horn and lights. If the lights are dim and horn not loud check for a ground problem.

Check in and around the fuse box for signs of burning and a short. Sounds like that is what you have. Begin checking the wiring hornace and all its connections and the route. Have someone step on the brake and see if the tail lights come on. If they do not, the problem is going to be in one central location.
