A fuse will only blow if there is too much current draw. It is likely that there is an intermittent short in the wiring for the brake circuit. Do you tow any trailers with lights connected up? They are common for having bad wiring, causing fuses to blow. If not, a auto electrician will need to check the current draw for the brake light system, a quick and easy job, to find out if there is a fault present all the time or just intermittently. Intermittent wiring faults can be very time consuming (read expensive) to find.

You may have a bad ground on that side. Look at all the wiring back there and see if there is any corrosion. Some times you can find the ground wire and run a new ground. Unlike the power lead, you can add a ground anywhere in the system with no impact on the integrity.

Testimonial: "Thank you."
It sounds like your brake pedal switch is not working right. Are the lights on all the time, or just when you turn ignition off? If the former, it is bad brake switch. If the latter, you likely have a bad ground located somewhere in the wiring harness.
Most vehicles have the switch located on a small plate next to the brake pedal arm. Follow the pedal up the arm and to the firewall. Along the way you should see a plunger style switch that looks like the one that you bought. It might also be found inside or next to the brake booster under the hood.
