Question about 2000 Dodge Durango
You definitely have an electrical short! When the left signal is turned on the electrical shouldn't be attached to any other circuit (unless a short exists) by feeding those other lights.
When you press on the brake the lights go out since the short is not being grounded and I'm surprised you haven't blown a fuse when this happens since the electricity that should have run through the light(s), it now going straight back to the battery and ground shorting.
Electrical shorts are the most elaborate and the mechanic could take 3-4 hours to isolate (less with specific description of event provided by you).
I have the official Durango shop manual mechanics use, and the electrical paths are specific, but complex. Don't think this is something you should attempt. BUT if you want to look somewhere.......start with.....(checking book)...nope too many possibilities, and hands on testing needs to be done to isolate problem.
