brake light issue

So I just changed out my lenses and now I have brake light issues. Only my third light works when I step on the brake. When my headlights are on the rear brake lights shine red. Any ideas?

ground issue perhaps?, if you replaced the light bulbs which are double filament style (1197 I believe) did you install them with the notch in the proper index, did you use 1196 single filament bulb in place of the proper 1197?

LH and RH light wires are different as well as the running light. I think the third brake light is run off one of the rear brake light wires. If you are having problems with both sides it would point to a bad ground or connectors?
