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.

Wires are shorting somewhere Ck at battery put a test light between cable and battery And start pulling fuses,12 seconds. To go our because you have a intergeartion relay pause for headlight so wait until it goals off ever time You pull a fuse when the fuse light stays on problem circut diagram and follow yourroblem Yyyyyy
