Brake Lights:
Have you tested Voltage at the "2" wires on the Brake Switch?
With Pedal up, One wire should show "Constant 12 Volts +", the other wire should show Ground -
Withe Pedal down, the wire that shows Ground - should now have Voltage +

.

Parking Lights:
Have you checked Voltage + at the Light Switch?
