I would be looking for a short circuit in your brake light wiring.A short is where your electricity goes to earth and blows the fuse. The fuse protects your wiring and your switches from burning out when a short occurs.Check your trailer plug wiring if you have a trailer plug,your trailer if it was hooked up and the wiring in your boot.Look for broken,frayed wires and occasionally your bulbs can short out internally and of course the wiring between your brake light switch and your stop lights .Hope this helps. :) Kevman
