Probably a bad caliper(s), the pads are metal to metal, master cylinder is bad or one or both of the rear shoes have brake fluid or worse rear end fluid on them. Take it to a REPUTABLE mechanic. This is a safety thing for you, your passengers and the people around you and the road.

    My 2000 Dodge Durango it shuts off and after you let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes it will turn back on and it will stay on probably for about 10 minutes and I'll shut off again.
