Still sounds like a gound somewhere. check from the battery to the body.

I agree with the bad ground theory. Especially when it's on an older Ford! The brake circuit will find a ground through the taillight filament, then back through the headlight switch if the ground at the rear is bad. Clean all sockets, connections and replace anything you can't clean up.

Had the same problem with mine and it turned out to be the turn signal switch in the colum. The plates wore out and dont make contack. The brake switch wires run up to turn switch then back down to the rear lights and if a turn signal is used it cuts power to that rear light and sends it to the flasher instead.
