You definitely have a short in your power line for your brakes. Shorts can be very difficult to find. They can be anything from water in the fixture to someone tapping into the brake line for their car stereo. (if you accidently used the brake power line as ground, it could be shorting through the chassis of the car/truck since an ohm meter would read it as ground without the pedal being pushed.) You might find the easiest way to solve the problem is to take it to a professional and it might even take them a few hours or just a few minutes to find.) It IS unquestionably a short in the brake wire, and it is unfortunately impossible for anyone to give you a firm answer without being with your car with a voltmeter in hand. Take it to a pro. Good Luck

My brake lights were not working so we checked all of the fuses, now we tried to crank the car and it wont start but you can hear a click from around the fuse box under the hood. car was working fine...

When you checked the fuses did you pull them out and examined them and if so was the batter connected. You could have accidentally blow a fuse by pushing it back into the fuse socket. Re-check all the fuses again but this time disconnect the battery. Any broke fuse replace and once done re-connect the batter.

As for your brake lights check the brake pedal and make sure that upon depressing the brake pad you hear a clicking sound engaging a switch to operate the brake lights. Good Luck

Bbrake lights worked then didn't. replced fuse

You have a brake light switch under the brake pedal arm. When you apply brakes the arm presses a switch and turns them on. The switch may have went bad. Easy to replace. It's works like the push button in a refrig "open the door the lights come on" close it and the lights go off.
