Electrical problems are frying my brain

Hello I have a 98 ford taurus 3.0L dohc v6 with 89000 miles. When I try to open my trunk I hear the relay and something click in the trunk but it doesnt open. Also when I push the trunk release button it turns my hi mount brake lights on really bright. When I push the brakes in it shuts my car off, I took off the brake light switch and it no longer shut off my car. Rear defrost light shuts car off and when I turn the lights on it shuts it off. This leads me to the rear lights must be taking to much power somewhere I just dont know where. I've looked everywhere for burnt wires, but none so far. Also I heard that you can diagnose a car by how many times the airbag idiot light flashes. Heres the sequence 3 long flashes then 7 short flashes. If any one could help me out from spending a lot of money it would be greatly appreciated.
