Check your brake fluid seems like you have a hydraulic leak in your brakes and this is why you have to keep pumping the brakes in order to regain pedal stability

What goes wrong with abs brake module in 99 dodge ram 2500 diesel truck

It isn't often we get enough information to make a diagnosis, but I think we can in this case.
You have a break light switch under the dashboard that is plastic, and has a "plunger" button.
When you press the brake pedal, that allows the plunger button to extend, which closes contacts inside the switch, and makes the brake lights come on.
If and when that switch either breaks or gets loose, the plunger will stay extended, and the brake lights will stay on, discharging the battery.
God bless your efforts to see & fix this.

My parking light wont shut off on my 2002 chevy tahoe

The brake light on most vehicles is not only an indicator that the parking brake is on, but that there is a problem with the system.

One possibility is that the e-brake cable might have developed **** and does not pull far enough to release the light. That might involve replacing the entire e-brake cable.

Keep us updated.

I replaced the brake light switch and wont shut off

Pull UP on the brake pedal while someone watches the brake lights. If they go off (they should), you need to check the adjustment. It should be adjustable to make contact when the pedal is slightly depressed.

Yes, most likely a fault in the auto transmission, and the car has shut itself off to prevent further damage.

The rear lights won't shut off when the car is shut off.

the lights you have on are probably the brake lights. you need to check the brake light switch. it is probably stuck in the on position and that would cause the cruise to not function properly because the cruise automatically shuts off when you press the brake pedal.
hope this helps!

1993 saturn sl engine dies

I just had this problem with my 97 sc1. I found that the driver's rear tail lights were staying on dim when ever the car was running. In my situation, the cluster of wires that ties to the rear tail light is also the wires that tie to the fuel pump. Every time you hit the brake, it shorted out and cut the power to the fuel pump. Test for this problem by pulling one of your tail light bulbs, if the car shuts off or wont start without it, this could be your problem.

Back brake lights do not shut off. Plenty of brake fluid. Could the calipher be stuck, not releasing once brake let off of? 1996 Toyote Corolla.

Right at the brake pedal there is a brake light switch that can stuck in the closed position keeping the brake lights on. One way to test it is by removing one of the wires to it, if the light shuts, must be replaced.
