Something doesnt sound right ,sounds like a bad short but fuse should blow ,did you install or modify something latelyin near that electrical routing,that elec. circuit must be damaged and making contact with one of your primary circuits ignition,fuelpump,inspect brake elec. circuit from brake switch to lights,you should find your problem

2001 grand vitara runs good but stalls every time I hit the brake, I had a corroded positive terminal I replaced it and now I have this problem

stalls, there are 50 ways to stall a motor,
1: engine lost compression. (can do that hot, or over heated)
2: lost spark.
3: bad fueling. (too much or too little)
4: isc sticks (can your right foot avoid the stall easy, bingo ISC.
5: lost electric power to EFI system. lost 12v, (even a loose fuse)

sounds to me #5 based just on the brake deal.

Jeep Grand Cherokee - 1995 - Intermittent electrical fault. When driving along the power fails for the dashboard completely; the dials and gauges fail, all the lights go out and the radio turns off. It is...

power loss 12vdc to cluster.
basic, simple loss can happen. easy
get it fixed?
any shop in town can. that is what 99% do today

if not read the book the sm is free,
takes a $20 DMM meter to find it,
replace the 2 cluster fuses yet, that brake thing is very very odd.
sound to me like engine stall, and total vacuum loss as side effect.
brake hard is not the correct word
brakes hard and work perfectly as manual brakes do
and only the vacuum assists fails
in fact the brakes are totally ok ,just takes more pedal pressure.
its not unsafe unless 85 lb granny drives it.. see?
fuses, are first (always and for SURE 1995)

the book, and click ZJ
then click wiring
Chapter 8w page 40+
this cluster has a VOLT METER
see that?, if it goes to zero (tells you catastrophic power loss)
and head lamps work (DO THEY)???
then the key switch failed.? can be.... but...
or fuse block fuse 21 or 22 below. (or are loose or defective,rusty)
cab box both 15amp ATC fuses.
or fuse 12, under hood. 40amp.

simple no? battery dead, not if Head lamps work)
fuses (all 3) the key switch wiggle it yet?>>>>>?????????
and wires. bad. id bet it not ground G106 bad.

I have a 2000 grand am gt 3.4l and when i go to stop, as i slow down, the car seems to **** forward and backward slightly as i hit the brakes. would this be my rotors possibly?

Sounds like warped drums or rotors
( shaking when hitting the brakes )
Need to check complete braking system, just in case you have a hanging caliper or wheel cylinder ( if it has drums, that is in back )

When I'm holding breaks pedal, the turn signals stops working and engine stalls. Pontiac Grand Am 1998 v6

Sounds like you have a short between your brakes and turn signals. The car needs to be serviced by a dealer.

ABS, brake, trac control, service engine soon light came.

I'm sorry to say that you will need to see a dealer or repair shop so they scan your ABS for trouble codes first and then find your problem.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee stalls when brakes are applied

My 2000 Grand Cherokee had the same problem, without all the sputtering, it would just die approaching a stop. We could only keep it running by slightly pushing down on the gas petal when coming to a stop. I replaced the Throttle Position Sensor, but that didn't change anything. A new mechanic I found replaced the Idle Air Control Valve, and we've had no problems in a week.
