Do you mean the brake light switch OR fuse is "popping"..?

Brake light switch keeps popping. Fuse was replaced with a higher amp fuse after the 2nd time the switch blew. 3rd switch replaced blew again 2 days later

Do you keep a fire extinguisher in the car??....Might come in handy!

Fix the broken/shorted out wire in the trunk harness...........that's my guess. STOP replacing parts and find the cause of the problem. You can do that by removing the fuse and removing the brake switch and get a volt/ohmmeter , do that and reply for next step..... And you might need some extra wire too make a jumper or two.
