2004 Nissan Frontier XE 4x4 3.3 every time I hit my brakes the truck downshifts

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

98% of the time when I hit the brakes the truck downshifts no matter what
speed, and occasionally when I hit the brakes the hazards come on they
don't flash just light up solid and my tail lights don't work now either. Dash
lights, turn signals, running lights and headlights all work fine. One time the
set (for cruise control) light came on randomly while driving it flashed about 7
times and hasn't done it since, I'm assuming some sort of ground issue but
confused on why the truck downshifts, but in any case i'm not even sure
where to start on this.
