Re: my break ligths dont flash
Unless both bulb filaments went out, there is a switch that the brake pedal sits on when released. It should be located under the dash above your foot. You shouldn't miss it. When the brakes are applied, the switch pops out activating the lights, it sounds like that switch may be faulty. Hope that works

You have not set the switch correctly, at rest the switch is operated and the lights will be on. The switch needs to be set resting on the brake pedal with the plunger depressed, as the pedal is pushed it moves away from the switch, the plunger extends and switches the lights on.
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.
If you have a test light, check the brake light switch (usually mounted at the top of the break pedal arm). The switch will have voltage on one wire....when the pedal is pressed, the switch closes the circuit and sends voltage to the other wire connected to the brake lights.
Sounds like a broken wire somewhere. Since the middle brake light works I would suspect it is somewhere in the trunk or close to the back seat. Buy or make a tester. A 12v light with a clip on one wire that you clip to a good ground on the car the other wire with a sharp point. Turn the turn signals on then poke wire to rear lights until tester lights. When tester lights you know the break is somewhere inbetween the tester and the brake lights.
