In the back should be tail lights which always come on when the headlights or parking lights are on, and stoplights which come on whenever the brakes are pressed. The stoplights should be brighter than the tail lights, but they should be separate.

How do you test a slack adjuster?

Assuming we are talking about "S" cam air brakes on a truck, check the angle at the end of the slack adjuster to the actuator rod coming out of the air brake can when brakes are applied, it should be 90 degrees, if the slack adjuster is manual adjust it with the brakes not applied and then test again. If they are automatic slack adjusters and you do not have 90 degrees with brakes applied it is worn out or not installed correctly.

The brake lights should not come one until you step on the brakes. The tail lights should come on when the headlights are on. If they're weak, maybe there's dirt in/on the lenses or maybe the bulb is old and clouded. Change the bulbs and see if that improves things.
