Whenever weird electrical things start to happen, the first thing I do is to check all the earth points and leads. If an earth is bad, the current will travel any which way to get out.

I've never heard of this particular problem though.

Had the same problem in my one of my EL's, its just a problem with one of your brake lights, so check em out and replace the faulty one.
