If the loose wire when connected to live circuit keeps the lights on, it 
means that the loose wire should be connected to the brake switch, and 
it goes directly to b/lights, not to the fuse box. The other connector 
on the b/switch should be always live (your red/yellow), and this wire 
goes directly to the fuse box. Red/black wire comes of form b/switch and 
goes to the six point (brown) connector behind dash, and form there it 
branches (still red/black), one side goes to b/lights, and the other to 
three point (blue) connector which goes to cruse control switch, so one 
way or another, you will have to connect red/black wire to the loose 
red/black wire, since it belongs to that circuit. Probably broken of 
from the multy connector behind the dash, where it branches to cruse 
control switch.
