Brake lights problem

Ok so I just got out of the Marines and my 1993 wrangler 2.5L has sat four about two or three years. I got it running the other day and noticed that when I have my lights on, the tail lights do not light up, and if I hit the breaks no break lights light up. But with the lights are off if i hit the breaks they light up? Any help with this would be great, and I think I had this problem before it sat for so long.

Start checking lights for corrosion, sounds like a bad ground or short.

pull your bulbs and clean the bulb sockets with electrical connection cleaner and throw in some new bulbs. Also make sure the bolts are snug that holds your tail lamps to the body that is also your ground.
