Question about Cars & Trucks
Most cars have a switch mounted to the brake pedal assembly and when you press the brake pedal down it pushes on the switch and completes the circuit for the brake lights. The parking brake has a different switch and circuit. Get a Haynes manual for your car it should have the location of the brake switch and how to test it. Good luck

First thing i would do is chg. the break light switch, and make sure to chk. all grounds around tailights, sometimes if there is a ground problem it will travel back thru the hot wire to get a ground, witch in turn makes everything go wackey.

Probably a bad grounding, causing the current to go other ways than intended i.e through other lamps. Check for corroded lamp sockets or bad ground connections in the tail light assembly, also check the lamps so they are ok.

check fuse under hood, batery terminals coroded wire at harness if everything fails run a hot wire to rear brake line with an interuptor.
check the swich under the foot brake.

check the relays and connections at the tail lights and under the truck, has the truck ever been off road or in deep water?

As for the brake lights push brake pedal down while pushing on and wiggling the hazard switch.If the brake lights come on then replace the multi-function switch.
