I had the same problem with my 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The problem is in the tail light assembly grounding prong. It seems to be a manufacturing defect because as soon as I fixed 1 side then the other side started doing the same thing. The plastic supporting the grounding prong (the contact that is by itself) weak and separated from the base holding the bulb, resulting in a poor ground connection able to support only the tail light or only the brake light, but not both. I fixed this with some JB weld. I glued the plastic back together being careful to not leave excess glue in the socket, so I'd be able to put the light bulb back in. I also braced this using the JB weld and a piece of thin, scrap plastic placed behind the prong for added support, roughly the size same width and thickness of a popsicle stick broken to about 3/4" long. I clamped everything together with a small clamp and was ready to go after an hour of dry time.

If you just installed a new carburetor why would a car stall when you slam on the brakes?

a couple of things. 1: does it drive good doesnt stumble when driving if not the carby might be flooding..... 2: if it runs great and only dies when the brakes are applied, does it idle rough then die, it might be the brake booster. maybe your tcc solenoid, which is in the transmission. my 84 montecarlo did that with a new carb

How do you fix siezed brakes?

If the brakes are disc brakes then try opening the bleed screws on the calipers and see if the pressure releases if not then remove the calipers and replace because the piston is probably frozen or you can try pushing in the piston with a c-clamp,if that doesnt work replace the calipers as noted. If the brakes are drum brakes then check your brake cylinders to see if they are leaking if so you can usually rebuild them if not then replace them and bleed your brake system to get brakes back to normal, you can also make sure your drum brakes are adjusted correctly.
