You might want to try replacing the bulbs in the tail lights, could be a short in the bulb or possibly a bad ground connection

You have installed a single contact bulb (possibly an 1156) into a brake light socket meant for a dual-contact bulb. The single contact bulb is shorting the two contacts in the dual-contact socket.

The Fix: Replace the improper single-contact (single filament) bulb with the proper dual-contact (dual-filament) bulb. Dual filament bulbs are typically used in brake lights. Look there first.
