Not posotive with your exact make and model, but their should be a switch directly above where the brake pedal rests normally. It will be a small switch. When you hit the brakes, the switch pops out, and then when it retracts, the pedal itself pushes the button down thus turning the lights off. It shouldn't be but $10 to $15 at the parts store, and installation shouldn't be more than a few screws, and the a small wiring harness clip.

Dim tail light.

Brake light switch under dash and actuated by the brake pedal lever is out of adjustment or faulty. Adjust or replace it and you'll have your brake lights back. The dim tail lights may just be that you have possible replaced them with the wrong bulbs or the ground to light housing is faulty.

Tail lights

get a 12 volt tested and take the lens off and test with the lights on and the bulb remove to see if you have power in the socket also test the wire behind the socket check for ground wire, loose wires, and also checkout the light switch.
