Dead short to ground Try removing bulbs and checking sockets install a test light in place of fuse it will glow when brake pedal is depressed if short is present Hold brake pedal down or jump switch and start tracing wire to find bare wire etc.

Are you blowing fuses or are the bulbs blowing? Blowing fuses would be a sign of any wires or metal contacts in your brake circuit grounding out or shorting on themselves. You'll have to check all of the wiring in your brake light/switch circuit to be sure.

It's probably your brake lights, not your brakes.

The tail lights on a VW Golf may keep blowing if a short is present in the system. When wires become damaged, they will quickly overload a circuit and blow fuses and bulbs.

you have a short somewhere on that circuit. you need to find it and repair it.

Are both your brake lights blowing out? If it affects only one light: it could be a bad light socket, or a pinched or frayed wire that is shorting out.
