1992 Honda Accord Question: have a power drain somewhere in my system and brake lights stuck on.

Ok, have seen alot of similar issues as everyone else. It all started with a power drain in the electrical system. Then the power door locks began to activate themselves. I removed the fuse to see if that was the power drain issue, it wasn't. Recently the brake lights have been stuck on, even with the car turned off. Today the battery died while driving and had to be towed home. Kinda at a loss, as I am not very mechanically inclined with electrical systems in cars. Any advice would be greatly appreciated and I will add you to our Christmas card list if you can help me. Contact me at my e-mail any time auteeth@yahoo.com

    Should have mentioned that. Alternator has been checked out of the vehicle. No problems there and a new battery.

    IF THE CAR DIED WHILE DRIVING AND IT WAS BECAUSE THE BATTERY WENT
    DEAD WHILE DRIVING THEN FIX THE CHARGING SYSTEM!!! SLIM CHANCE BUT
    IT COULD BE A SHORTED BATTERY. MOST LIKELY SUSPECT IS ALTERNATOR!!
    HAVE CHARGING SYSTEM CHECKED WITH ALT. ON CAR SO YOU CAN TELL WHAT
    IT IS DOING THEN.
