Sounds like an electrical problem check your fuses?

If it is while you are driving, then maybe a wiring issue where the circuit is completed and the wire touches with the forward momentum of the car. If it is when you are idle, then it has to do with your wires being crossed with your brake lights somehow.

    My car's headlights won't pop up or light up. There is no sound when I hit the switch. I thought harness, but harnesses aren't a wear-out item. Any ideas?
