I have recently purchased the above car. since owning the vehicle the brake lights do not work. I have changed the bulbs and also looked for the switch mentioned in earlier problems. the switch does not exist. all other lights work even normal rear lights which operate off the same bulb. Any suggestions????

If there is no brake lite switch on the arm of the brake pedal then look to see if there are two wires hanging down with a plug on them, as perhaps the previous owner removed the brake lite switch with the intentions of replacing it and just never got around to it.

For starters it is spelled "Brake" light...LOL . Sounbds like you may have a brake light switch that has gone out. In yor owners manual does it show more than one fuse for the brake lights? Most vehicles with a thrid/highmount brake light split the brake light power to either the left and third brake light and the right brake light or vice versa, or posibble 3rd brake light on its own fuse. I would check if all of the brake light including the 3rd brake light dont work. If no lights work at all it leans toward the switch which controls all or them to activate hence the brake light switch. It should be mounted on your brake peal arm or to the main base. The pedal lever activate the switch when you depress the brake pedal.
Most likely the brake light switch at the top of the brake pedal has failed
Your HAZARD / Tail fuse has blown.
Underneath the dash at the top of the brake pedal locate the brake light switch. Remove the connector / wires on the back of the switch and then jumper across the 2 pins to make the brake lights come on. Start the car with the brake on and try shifting the car out of park.
Your brake light switch is stuck. It's mounted just under dash above your brake pedal. Sounds like it wasn't adjusted properly. You can disconnect your battery for the night and reattach in AM to get back to repair shop for proper fix. Remember when reattaching cables, NEGATIVE CABLE GOES ON LAST
I had EXACTLY the same problem with a friends car i was doing work on.
Your problem is almost certainly a faulty brake light switch. This is a
common fault and brings on the dash lights you describe. The switch is
located just above the brake pedal and is easy to fit. If you can get
the OBD codes read...My guess is it will show up this switch as faulty.
pull the brake pedal up and see if they turn off if they do your brake switch is bad and need a new one but if they not unplug the brake swict located above the brake pedal and if they turn of it is the switch
