SOURCE: brake lights
Did you change the light bulb? sometimes you can not find whether it is out of order or not, you have to use a Om amp meter to make sure it is broken, anyway put a good new one there and see what’s happening. Usually there are many electronic reasons to drain the battery. I don’t think the light bulb cause this case. We will find out step by step.

A simple fix is to pull fuse number 15 in the fuse box under the hood.... (by the radiator... long black box about 3 inches wide by 12 inches long.) It should be a 15 amp fuse. This will not really fix the issue, but its a heck of a lot easier than the tracking down you might need to do. What? It could be a headlamp switch, a daytime runninglight module, or a short in the wire for the daytime running lights. This simple easy thing is to pull the fuse and see if that works for you now. (You will lose daytime running lights doing this. So determine if you need those first... legally or otherwise.)

SOURCE: my car radio stopped working
It takes a nano second to ruin today's electronics. I'd check the fuse for the radio before hitting tha panic button. You may be lucky and only blew the fuse If you are prone to leaving stuff on, I suggest at least once a month you should put your battery on a charger...The alternator can never completely charge a battery...it's designed to maintain the state of charge...not re-charge. This shortens battery life and overworks the alternator. Hope it's only a fuse and if it is a radio, be glad you didn't do more...I've seen everything including the computer get fried!!
