Buy new bulbs and make sure the sockets are clean and not all corroded.

I'm pretty sure you've got dual filament bulbs in there (one filament lights up as a taillight with the headlights on, the 2nd one will light up in addition to the first when applying brakes)

I once had an Integra that had a similar issue, turns out the filaments in the bulb were to close together so it'd spark and heat up that 2nd filament despite NOT having the brakes on...so go buy some new bulbs and see what happens.

Buy better bulbs.

I had the exact same problem. Put a new bulb in and then it just had the light on all the time.

I grabbed another bulb put it in and no problems since then. 5 months.

good luck. cheers.
