Hello, check the brake switch out, it could be bad or sticking, or need to be adjusted, get somebody to pull up on brake pedal, check and see if tailights is out, if so the brake switch needs to be adjusted, also check and see if both wires are connected to switch, you will have to get flash light look under dash were break pedal is, you can see the switch, there should be 2 wires running to it.

I would try and adjust the switch for the brake peddle to make a better contact to push the switch further.

My tail lights stay on and it drains the battery found out the hard way came out of class and it was dead took a while to charge from a jump and then when i got home noticed after i shut it off the tail...

if you look above the break petal under the dash you will see a little switch attached to the petal. on most cars the switch is adjustable by pulling the pin out of the switch a bit and then putting it back in and pressing the break petal to re calibrate it. if that dosent work it may just be broken and needs replacement. also look around the break petal area under the dash and make sure nothing is keeping the petal from coming all the way back up

The battery light is on and the break light and now it will not start

The warning light means the alternator is not charging the battery.
I would clean the posts on the battery first and see if the light goes off.
If it stays on, you will need to have the charging system checked.

I have a 1988 c1500 chevy truck and my break lights stop working and notice the stop light fuse was missing just bought truck back from previous owner but when I replace the fuse the break light stays on...

The brake light switch on these trucks was a poor design. Its mounted on the brake pedal. Look under there and bend the bracket that holds the brake light switch slightly and things will start working again. When these were new we used to just grab the brake pedal and pull it toward the drivers seat really hard and let go. This fixed your problem 99% of the time.

2 nights ago my battery died. I got a jump by a friend and drove it to a destination then parked it. Leaving the car I noticed my tail lights stayed on which meant a bulb was dead I assume so I unplugged...

It could be your starter if you hear a sound when you try to start your car like a clicking noise or not a noise at all. Also it it tries to turn over, but doesn't it's your alternator. Hope this helps!?
