As the temp's start to cool the tail lights vanished again so I need to figure out the wiring issue.
I am pretty sure the wiring issue is near or around the battery,

a possible bad connection.

after countless of hours tracing.

I have found that this sensor is the issue.
 

This sensor is located behind the wheelwell in the trunk area passenger side. I just bypassed one wire and now I have lights when I hit the breaks. Bypassed until I can get a replacement sensor.

That sensor is what causes the warning lamp on the dash to light up in case you have a burned out brake lamp.

ohh, that light always lights up when I touch the brakes so makes sense.

Question is now, all the bulbs are new and is in working order, if that is what it does. I wonder if the sensor itself is completely fried in a way it's causing my issue.

I also need to referb / replace the headlight switch.
