You have a "Hot Wire" some place that is shorting out. You need to start following the wires to see if you can find the short.
Remove the Brake Light assembly and start there, working your way forward. Good Luck and Remember.

Where is the fuse for the brake lights at your brake lights arent working and i don't know what the prob is?

check under the hood of the vehicle...there should be a rectangular or square box with fuses there...there is also one under the dash of the vehicle.

Push it in and out severel times and see if the lights come on.
