From memory the problem may be a short around the brake switch area. There was a thread a while ago - last year - but cant remember if it was fixed.

To test this just unpleg a wire to the brake switch (while in the driveway:) ) and see if you still have the problem.

brake light bulbs being 1 pin instead of 2 or corosion in the plugs or a bad earth all at the tailing connectors is what you would be thinking of

I'd be sussing out these things.

- check your earth wires, eg. from battery to body - negative.
- check all globes could be one is shorting out.
- do what greenvn said :)

write back what else you've done to sus it out.
