Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

The dashboard lights are the bulbs that are burned out. Sounds like a few are burned out but not all.

Seat buttons not working could be a fuse, or a wiring problem or the seat motors themselves.

If no brake lights are working, most likely the brake pedal switch, I would double check the bulbs and connectors.

Light on the dash indicating the bulbs out is probably just that a bulb really is burned out.

One break light doesn't work, tried new bulb and still didn't work (7443 bulb) works as a parking light but when breaking it doesn't work

You need a volt meter to diagnose, check for power at the brake light when the pedal is pushed.

Do you have a volt meter and a wiring diagram?

This is going to be tough to diagnose without doing any tests.
