How disappointing that you don't get any reading at all.
Was the meter set for DC Volts? Not AC Volts.
But you do have some other "phantom" issues.
If one brake light works, the other should, too.
And the trunk light not working.
I'm going out on a limb here, but corrosion of harness components is an all too common event on these. Wiring in the rear fender well areas is vulnerable especially. I don't want to send you on a goose chase but keep this in mind if you don't find a logical reason for those lights not working.

What was wrong with the brake light??
Yes, the door open light is in the cluster.
No, I don't think the loose battery terminal caused these indicators to fail. But it could (maybe) have led to alternator failures.
Most immediate is getting the battery terminal fixed. See if that clears up any other issues or start over again.

shows some of the more common terminals available.
You'll have to get a bit creative. There are actually 2 cables on the Pos post; thick one to starter and smaller one to fuse box.
