It sounds like someone got in there and did a little creative rewiring at one time. I would start pulling fuses one at a time until I found out which fuse is tied into the brake lights. May not be the tail light fuse by itself. It may have been tied into the radio at some time. I would then start tracing the wires back until I figured out the where the problem was. Sounds like someone wired it to something which is always hot like the clock or something.
