I changed all the bulbs-twice, just to be sure. The right brake light is dim, the left is bright. None of the tail lights work. Left blinker works, the right doesn't. Only right brake works when the headlights are on.

Brake light switch under dash and actuated by the brake pedal lever is out of adjustment or faulty. Adjust or replace it and you'll have your brake lights back. The dim tail lights may just be that you have possible replaced them with the wrong bulbs or the ground to light housing is faulty.
Your right brake light is not the same bulb as your rear running light that comes on with the headlights. Different bulbs. Your right brake light is simply burnt out or has worked its way out of the connection. Take it to Advance Auto Parts. They may even change it for you. Not a big problem.
there must be a short circuit which powers tail lights and brake lights. probably you have a dual filament bulbs which have both brake and tail light together. check for bulb, socket/or bulb housing and harness of that light.
first eliminate the possibility that you have the wrong bulb in the wrong socket. it sounds dumb but going way back to 1157 bulbs there have been two rear tail light bulbs which will fit into the same socket but are electrically different. If you have ever driven down the road following a car which had one bright and one dim tail light, or brake light, then you have seen this in action.
since you have one good tail light assembly remove the bulbs, taking great care not to mix them up and make sure the bulbs are exactly same as in the non working assembly. i mean you have to look closely at the bulb's connection points as they will look very much the same.
if the bulbs are correct then you are looking at buying a new socket, or light assembly if the whole thing is wired into the car.
what you are seeing is the bright filament on the bulb working, the tail light bulbs have two filaments in each bulb,one is dim and one is bright,the bright one is to the brake and turn signals,that way when you step on the brake with the tail lights on the same lens light up brighter to warn drivers behind you.. you need to check the fuses in the car for tail lights first,see if your plate light is on that will tell you the bulbs are just blown
most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine
There should be at least 2 bulbs in the light assembly. One light is the light that is on when you turn on your headlights with out the brake pressed, the other light only lights up while you press on the brake. Make sure you are replacing the correct bulb. You may have been replacing the bulb that stays on. Your lights may be set up to turn off the light that stays on when the headlights are on while pressing the brakes.
