1987 YJ rear lights

As this is my first time using I hope someone can help me. I have no running lights or turn signals in the back of the jeep. I just installed new lights and the brake lights work fine but nothing else (the old lights didn't work either.) The weird thing is when I turn my head lights on the brake lights stop working? Fuses look good and everything seems to be plugged in the correct way.

Did you buy it like this?
Were they working and now they are not?

My guess is there is a short somewhere or a bad ground.

Take a look at my handmade custom paracord grab handles & other handmade paracord items!

You Choose the colors!!

My yj was the same way when I bought it, I had to play with wiring for a few days. The guy I bought it from didn't know how to wire things correctly, he's the one that messed it up.
