Question about 2004 Dodge Ram
A few days ago I was informed by a coworker that my brake lights were on. None of the other lights on the truck were on- 04' dodge ram 5.7 hemi.
I started the car, made sure all the light switches were off- even hit the brake a few times to see if that triggered something. I hit the alarm button twice and managed to turn them off. Over the course of the next few days they came on randomly and flashed in sets of 3-4 every few minutes. Again only the brake lights. I took the truck to the mechanic and he replaced the brake light switch which seemed to fix the problem for about 5 hours. they again began to flash.. which of course has drained my battery several times over the past week. My mechanic has also checked the fuses and everything else seems to be in just fine electrically speaking. I'm thinking it is the alarm system at this point but do not know which part is malfunctioning. Unfortunately my truck as 50k miles on it and is no longer covered by warranty. Any ideas on what it could be? Any help would be greatly appreciated
Id start by checking the relays and make sure the alarm wires dont have tears or cracks in them. if they do it could be causing a small short.

It is probably a problem with the alarm system you could try pulling the fuse for it
