You've got crossed wires somewhere, until you figure out what the issue is I would pull the fuse to the back lights so that the battery doesn't die every time the car is shut off.

Pull of the car's battery so that its energy won't go to waste while you're finding out the root of the problem.

your problem is the brake switch located on top of your brake pedal. meantime you replace it, best to disconnect your battery. if you pull the fuse, as soon you put it back it's going to blow.

Exactly! You never noticed that. Better take off first the battery as safety measure for it will surely blow you out! You could check out for online car repairs for better guide or get your car fixed with expert if you cant do it yourself.

Mine is doing the same thing, I just called my mechanic and he said it was the break light switch and he will fix it Monday. He said it cost about 30$.
