Check all fuses

New Engine won't crank I put a new engine in my 98 Silverado z71. The engine will not crank. The starter is good I checked it. I checked the relay their is power going in but won't go to starter I replaced relay as well and checked all fuses all good. I have power going every where except starter. Also it never did it before but now when I turn ignition my brake lights turn on. Everything was fine till the engine spun a bearing a month ago and I put the new engine in a week in a half ago. Much appreciated for any help. 1998 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Ext. Cab 6.5-ft. Bed 4WD

I bypass the relay and it will crank 4 times and then the crank fuse blows
