Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
At the risk of stating the obvious. You must have a short circuit. Somewhere between the switch on the break pedal and the brake light globe a wire is bare and touching the metal body of the car. Get a cheap multimeter and use the ohms setting. Remove the globes and check for continuity between the wire and the body of the car. There will be a couple of connector plugs along the wire. Disconnect them and test again. This will help your determine which section of wire has the short.
If you have a trailer hitch the short may be in those connections.
No easy answer. you are going to have to sniff it out.
