That sounds like you're gonna have to replace your alternator, that's usually the first sign I've experienced with my past cars. Because your alternator is spinning faster it is outputing more voltage. Under normal operating conditions your alternator should be producing 13 - 14 volts DC.

Its possible that your brightness for the dash lights and such is turned all the way down. Find the dimmer switch and turn it to a brighter setting and see if that works. Good luck!

Why are your dash lights are on in a 1992 Volvo 240 and get brighter when you rev the engine and dimmer when you brake?

You are experiencing a voltage regulation problem. If you look at your headlights during that rev period, they should appear brighter also. The taillights, during braking, load the electrical system and therefore, drop the voltage and cause the lights (all lights, they are most easily noticed) to dim. Go to an Advanced Autoparts store and have them test your charging system for free.

What can you do to fix your brake lights on your 1991 Chevy half ton when all your other lights work?

Check all the fuses and replace any that are blown. Check the bulbs for blown elements. Using a test light, check for power going into the brake light switch under the dash attached to the brake pedal. If you have that, check for power going through the switch with the pedal depressed. If there is power, you have a broken wire between the switch and the rear lights.
