You almost cetainly have a bad earth on the light or more likely on a break light so the bulb ( in the brake light ) not the dash light , is having to source its earthing through the dash light and this makes more current flow through that light causing it to brighten. I am puzzled though as to what this has to do with a GPS , as this is where you have "posted" your query ?

Have taillights but no brake lights or dash lights

Those are different unrelated circuits. The dash lights are from the Head/park light switch. Make sure the dimmer rheostat is not turned way down-you know, how you turn the knob for brighter or dimmer interior. If the bulbs are good on the backside of the cluster, it may be the switch.
The brake light switch is on the brake pedal. If no power to the switch, check the stop light fuse. I believe it may be same fuse as the hazard lights.

How do I reset abs and brake light on 1997 dodge ram 1500. Replaced speed sensor. Also unplugged Pulse control box under dash. Light is determined to stay on. Please help

Some cars/trucks run the ABS power through the brake light bulbs!
Does brake light and ABS light come on separately,key on,engine off?
Be sure that the parking brake switch is not bad.
The brake light should flicker/get brighter/dimmer when actuationg the parking brake.
Also,defeat the low fluid warning sensor.Defeat the pressure differentail switch.
I know some MFRs make both lights come on when either system fails.

Check for signal FROM the sensor at a wheel Use A/C voltage mode. I have spun the undriven hub with an electric drill to see A/C output.

Please note that the brakes will work OK but you not have ABS function.

See if you can get the brake warning light out,separately.

2002 Grand Caravan. Overhead console lighted switches are not lighting. The Map lights that shine straight down works but none of the others back lights. Side door switch,rear gate switch, garage door...

The first thing that comes to mind is that the dash lights scroll dimmer is scrolled all the way in one direction which manually shuts off all the interior lights, even if a door is opened. At night turn on the parking lamps and then scroll the dash lights dimmer until the dash, radio face, overhead console, etc is brighter. Turn off the headlamp switch. Shut off the engine and exit the vehicle. Interior lights on? Hope this helps.

After jump-starting my van, the panel lights don't come on when the headlights are on. How do I fix this?

this either a fuse that bew or your dimmer switch that makes the lights brighter and dimmer on the dash is turned down all the way if the fuse is good and it's nit turned down all the way then the bulbs are all blown or the dimmer switch is bad

Dodge d150 dim headlights when running and dies

you may have a bad alternator, bad battery, or simply dirty battery terminals.
Clean the battery terminal connections with a battery terminal brush and reinstall. Check to see if that helps your problem.
Usually this is an alternator problem. If the headlights get brighter when you rev the engine, then it's most likely the battery. But if the lights just get dimmer and dimmer, it's most likely the alternator. If the voltage gauge doesn't show proper voltage, 14 or more volts, alternator is probably the fault.
