Make sure you have the right bulbs in all the correct spots. A single phase "3156" in place of a dual phase "3157" will cause this. Both brake and running light in the rear are dual phase bulbs. The only bulb that is a single phase is the reverse light. Idk why but they are. If any bulb looks old change it anyway. On a rare occasion the burnt filament can cross circuits.
