Check your wiring. I'd start at the back of the truck around the trailer plug if you have one, if not the tee just under the bed by the bumper. The tail light lead and the brake lights must be touching somewhere. If the wiring looks good check the light and light sockets

Thanks. I removed an old trailer plug, maybe I got something crossed. I'll check the wiring.

something is crossed or a single phase bulb is in place of a dual phase somehow
