My S-10 is having elecrical issues. When I press the brake pedal the parking lights come on no brake lights, and the buzzer that lets you know your headlights are on sounds. Also the digital clock on the stereo gets dim and blinks on and off when I turn on the turn signal. I know this is a short of some kind but I've checked the brake switch by bypassing it with a wire thats not the problem. I've also checked all the bulbs for shorts all are good. What could this be?

Bulbs or sockets have a short. Re check them to see which has failed.

Check the grounds on both tail lights. A faulty or missing ground will cause current to the brake lights to feed back through the tail circuit which would cause the parklight to show as on.
