side lights come on when braking

I have a 155 16v. The side lights have just started to come on when I press the brake pedal, even when engine turned off. Any ideas. I presume there must be a short somewhere?

It is ok I have sorted it. Tracked it down to the nearside rear stop/tail light. One of the filaments was shorting with the side light filament inside the bulb. (never known this before). But it is mow sorted. Was a bit scary cos each time I braked I flashed albeit only side lights at on coming traffic must have been quite confusing for them. One for the memory banks this one I think.
