Check the circuitry to the backup lights. The same fused circuit is probably used for both brake lights and backup lights. As you go past Reverse, the backup light probably is turned on briefly, causing the fuse to blow. It's just a thought, but I'd think it worth checking.

Every now and then the brake lights turn on and the brake pedal is not being depressed whats going on?

Sticking Brake LightsI had this very same problem when I owned a Nissan 300zx. There is a switch in front of the brake pedal that when the brake pedal is pressed the metal part of the pedal presses down on a little button which turns the brake lights on when pressing the pedal. What I did was I got under the dash, took a flashlight and put a little piece of tape in between the pedal and the switch. It acted as a cushion because the pedal wasn't pushing down on the switch as it was pushing on the tape and when I pressed on the pedal the lights would come on but the tape pushed the pedal back to shut the switch off. If you want to avoid all this consider having your brake pedal adjusted. If your brake lights come on still consider having your cars wiring checked out.

1990 Nissan hardbody brake lights stuck on?

I would check the brake regulator switch, located under the dash near the top of the brake pedal. Its a silver piece that has a button like switch that activates every time you press on the brake pedal causing the light to turn on. It could be stuck in, causing the brake light to stay on.

What would be the problem if the back hatch brake light works on top but the two corner brake lights don't . it's not the fuse or bulb?

Sounds like bulbs need to be replaced--they most likely are double filamented-larger filament for tail lights and smaller for brake lights be a broken wire or a bad ground Depends on the car....most use 2 different circuits the top light going straight to the brake pedale switch and the tailights going through a control module THEN to the tailights. Check EVERY fuse you have in the car

If it is still on when your car is off it may be a sensor to your brake lights that may need looked at. If it is on when your car is running it may just be something to do with day time running lights.

In a series circuit there is only one path through every component in the circuit. Breaking that path by removing a bulb will stop the current flow...all lights go out.

How often should you change brake fuild?

brake fluid changes and brake inspections should be done atleast every two years, mainly the brake fluid has a tendancy to soak up moisture in the air and then this accumulated water tends to boil in the lines and calipers and brake cylinders during use, causing air pockets and a degradtion of braking, and can cause a complete loss of brakes at times.
