1999 618iS, parked for a few months so a flat battery, charged and starts 1st time, but now when i press brake pedal the side lights come on???? with key out and press brake the warning buzzer comes on as if side lights are on, also random door locking/unlocking even after a 5 mile drive, weird or what?
my best guess is an earth problem, but was fine before being parked up,
Any suggestions?

For door locking and unlocking to me this would be microswitch in drivers door which may become loose.
Regarding brake lights and sidelights at the same time, I would look for earth connection, or I would also take a look at rear light cluster to see if there is any loose or random connection.

I would still go for an earth problem for the lights as well, bit of rust could have started off whilst the car was parked up.
quick check would be to put an additional earth onto the light clusters' earth point and then stick the other end on some bare metal and see if that solves it.
