3rd brakelight Strobe controller~~~~~Dodgy electrics

My car seems to have an electrical problem.
Since I`ve had it it seems almost every time I do something electrical an item blows.
I`ve had to pay for a Lambda sensor a ECU and now I don`t know how much this latest error may cost.
I bought an after market strobe controller for my 3rd brake light. Tested it with a stand alone battery before attempting to fit; followed the instructions but now anything connected to the 3rd brake light electrics doesn`t work.

Is there an independant relay between the fuse for the brake lights and the unit itself? I checked the fuse (OK)
Any help will be gratefully received.
Regards to all,
