You have a shorted wire going to the brake lights. Start troubleshooting to narrow down the problem. Unplug brake lights on a harness plug by the spare tire and see if it still blows. If it doesn't the short is between that plug and brake lights. Check with ohm meter to find the shorted wire. If the fuse still blows after u unplug the wires by spare tire, the short is between plug and fuse. With fuse removed, check for short with ohm meter.
