Could be a wire crossed from the alarm system or a faulty switch use a test light to determine power to the switch itself and although it may not be the issue check and ensure all the fuses are good ...i do think at this point its a faulty light switch

Rear defrost stays on when car is shut off in 1996 impala ss

The rear defro does not have power going to it with the key off. This means there is somehow a short to power to this switch, if you can remove the switch check for power at the connection. If there is power there is a short, I will send you a schematic of the circuit.

Right brake light works off and on. When I put on turn signal all lights on that side gop off in rear. This is on a 1962 impala ss

you have a bad ground for that tail light, trace the wires and see where the ground wire attatches to the body.

I have no dashboard lights i was trying to find out what could be the cause

Do you have parking lights if so rule out switch. Check all fuses, if all are good then good chance dimmer switch is the suspect.

No tail, parking, or dash lights. Also no turn signals.

you need to check the under hood fuse block on the right hand side you may find that one of the red feed wires has no power from the box either a maxi fuse or the box it self you could also check for power with a test light moving back from the components to the main feeds under the hood
