Question dash lights and parking lights

Here is my problem. I have a 1997 chrysler sebring. When I touch the brake pedal the dash lights, parking lights come on and the lights on the radio go dim like I turned on the lights. Also if I press the brake pedal with the keys out of the ignition and the door open, the alarm goes off as if I had left the lights on. Please help.

check your rear brake light bulbs as one is apparently shorted or installed incorrectly causing current to flow through the paking light circuit when you press on the brakes.
start by doing just a bulb check usually you will notice a difference in one side as it may be brighter when you apply the brakes or have the park lamps on.

thanks

Thanks for your help. On one of my brake lights, the prongs on the bottom had melted and touched. I replaced the bulb and the problem is gone. Thanks again
