no it has a bad tail light ground you need to add a ground wire from the tail light harness to the brace inside the trunk.alot of them do that

Is it a little yellow light that comes on, it may be a brake light bulb failure!

Thanks everyone. The problem was actually the wires on the trunk hinge. Two of them were split in half and a few others had the insulaton pulled back with wire exposed. Spliced into the wires and the lights on the dash all went away, and all exterior lights work.
