BRAKE LIGHTS STAY ON WHEN PARKING LIGHTS ARE ON

I bought some LED tail lights for my Jeep YJ. Doesn't seem like it would be hard to wire up, but after hours, I can't get it. If I connect just one wire for the parking lights, it works fine. I connect the brake wire the lights get bright no matter if the brake pedal is pressed or not. If I connect just the brake light it works correctly. For some reason connect the brake wire and parking lights it looks like the brake lights are on all the time.

Is there a ground wire?

If so find another place to ground it (even if it's temporary) See if they work correctly with a better ground.
