    Opening/closing the trunk was pinching the harness and it had wore through to the bare wires.

You need to inspect the whole wiring harness for chafing/pinched wires. Something is exposed and shorting out.

Parking lights only work in reverse

First off locate the fuse panel and make sure there are no blown fuses and make sure there are no blown bulbs on the exterior lights. If there are no problems there then the problem more than likely lies within the steering column itself. Unless you are mechanically inclined, I suggest you take the vehicle to a shop to have the steering column repaired.

1997 camry toyota rear running lights dont work. bulbs are fine and all other electronics work, why is this and how can i fix it?

look for a tail light relay and fuse--probably in the engine compartment relay box. Try swapping the tail light relay with the horn relay and see if the lights work. If yes, replace the relay. Please let me know if you have more questions.
