First thing I would check is all frame grounds... like the negative battery cable and the grounding strap on the passenger side motor Mount to the wheel hub. In any electrical system, lights draw more current than anything (except the battery) when you turn them on... Check the grounds!
wiggle the steering wheel. (read the operators guide, it tells you this fact) there are 2 functions, park lock , lockout. and key lock. do you have the FSM for your car? yes, then it covers all that.
also the same guide tells you, there is park lockout bypass switch in the console. ever see that? it allows you to shift into or out of park when the park lock fails. for emergency usage. this bypass assumes the owner read the booklet in glove box and knows to use his/her brakes, while doing this bypass. not running over the kids or pets.

The car should be on level ground, make sure you bench bleed the master cyl. before installing it. or you might be working harder than you really want.
Are you bleeding each wheel or just at the master cyl. brake line fittings ?
Check the wire circuit for voltage and ground. The top wire is voltage, you can see the wire color, use a test lite, with lights on. The bottom black wire is ground for low beams, chassis ground. You can use test light to check ground, With test light touching voltage, touch ground wire terminal, if the light comes on, at least, the ground is good enough to lite the test light.
Some cars require you to lock the wheel prior to taking the key out of the ignition as an anti theft measure. Also, (not sure if its auto or standard) is car is not all the way in park, you can't remove the key. I hope this helps with your problem.
