Default Why do my tail lights and dashboard lights only go on when I brake?

I have an Acura Integra and I recently replaced one of the burned out tail lights. Then all of a sudden the interior dashboard lights, lighting on my shifter and brake lights do not light up unless I brake. Explanations anyone?I want to assume I should check for loose wires in the back where I changed my tail light.

You either installed a wrong bulb or you put the bulb in backwards. Yes it possible to reverse the bulb.

You need to trace your wiring you have a ground problem, this happens when a wire rubs against an object, look for a worn wire this could be in the tail light housing.
