Question about Toyota Tacoma
If you are saying the brake lights come on with the tail lights, you may have a short in the wiring or the lamp sockets. Try removing one of the bulbs at a time to see if the problem stops.

This type of problem can be caused by bad ground connections. Find as many as you can and clean the surfaces between the loop the screw goes through and the chassis (body). Take the tail light assemblies out and find the ground wires - black wires screwed to the body. Look under the hood, Pull the headlight assemblies out if necessary and find those little guys. They are generally close to the light. Follow the wire loom back from the lights and look for the black wires coming out. Loosen the screws and work the loop back and forth against the metal. Sometimes there is paint on the metal and the screw is the only thing making the connection. Work the screw in and out snug it against the loop and rotate the loop to freshen the connection.

Your brake light switch, which is located on the brake pedal, has malfunctioned. If you replace that your pedals will go back to working. When they go bad one or more brake lights will not work when the brake pedal is pressed but will work all other times. The reason is because the light doesn't "know" that the pedal is being pressed because it isn't getting the signal from the switch. Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

The rear tail light switch in the circuit. Remove the switch from its connect and bypass the the terminals on the connector with jumper wires and see what happens. If when you by pass the switch the tail and brake lights work you found the culprit.
