could it be a loose connection. When you hit the brakes the wires could be moving? Are you sure the yellow ire you are using is a constant 12V. Press the brake and measure the yellow wire.

I know it may sound strange but check the trunk for shorts in the tail/brake light wiring. I had the same problem with my CD player and it turned out a wire had come loose and was shorting to ground whenever I stepped on the brakes.
