Default Where do the brake light wires go? Pls Help

Hello all and a good day. =) I have just recently bought a 2001 F4i however I have a problem with the rear brake lights coming on. The running lights work just fine however when ever I pull the brake handle or foot lever, the lights do not get brighter. I pulled up the back of the passenger seat and saw why. The green/yellow wire for each one that to my understanding is for the brake illumination are not plugged to anything. 0.o...When I pull the lever/foot lever for the brake, I can hear some kind of click back there each time. So it sounds like it is getting juice etc to something. It seems ALL I have to do prob. is simply hook up these two green/yellow wires to something. I'll try to add some links to pictures of this to help out. =) I'm totally lost =( and this is my ONLY mode of transportation...sigh..

In this first pic you can see the left brake light wire not connected

In this second picture, this is the right brake light wire that is actually cut really short for some reason attached to a second longer wire not plugged in to anything.

And this third pic shows a row of 3 boxes on the right side (the left side has 3 boxes like this also) with numerous plugs. It seems like these various wires are not stock?
