Electrical problem
1997 Saturn SW1 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 173000 miles

not sure if this is electrical but it seems that way. I was stopped at a red light and the car shut off and wouldnt start again. I pushed the car to a spot and it started up but when I pressed the brakes it shut off. It idles down and quits. The hazards also light up a dim solid. When not running if I press brakes the car chimes and I can here here something run. Its a low hum, not the fuel pump. Ive strriped the car to see as much wires as I could and I cant find a short. If I pull the "brake" fuse it does none of this. Any ideas?Thanks
