A likely factor is that an issue with your brake system is drawing power from the battery, I would suggest going into your local dealer to have them find out exactly whats wrong instead of wasting time and money on random fixes.

Brake light& battery light keeps coming on now car won't start

Anytime the battery light on the dash comes on is an indicator of the alternator not charging, resulting in a dead battery. Low voltage will cause other warning lights to come on as well. Replace the alternator and fully charge the battery before running the engine, to avoid full field condition with the new alternator ( overheating).

Rear liGHTS wONT turn off. battery is new but drains until dead. where do i look for short ?

Are these the brake lights? What would the fuses have to do with this problem, if a fuse blows it would extinguish the lights. If it is the brake lights then go under the dash and unplug the brake light switch above the brake pedal arm and see if they go out if so then the switch is the problem.

The dash lights keep coming on. The brake light,

This same thing keeps happening with my car. I've had the battery, alternator, alternator wore and plug changed, and the lights still keep coming on, and car keeps cutting off. I talked to someone today and they said it might be bad wiring or fuses so.... that may be it!

Battery keeps draining and brake lights stay on

the brake pedal switch is the most likely cause for your problem. This would keep the lights from going out and this would cause the battery to go dead.

Brake lights stay on. have to take out fuse so battery don't go dead.

Check the brake light switch, probably mounted under the dash above the brake pedal. It may be failed in the ON position.
