2006 Mazda 3 Hatch brake lights not working

I have a 2006 Mazda 3 Hatch and none of the brake lights work. The general lights work when I turn them on, but when I apply the brake, nothing happens. I've checked the fuses, and all three lights and no breaks on any of the elements. Could this be a brake switch problem?

The lower lights are on a separate fuse by law, that is why the hi mount works. Check for wiring issues to the rear brake lights wiring harness, buy a factory wiring diagram.

Mazda 3 2004 brake light won't come on, turn and hazard work, small trunk light works

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. If your bulb and fuse are good, you probably need to change the brake switch. It is located right above the brake pedal. It is a round looking cylinder. It controls the brake lights. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and thanks for using FixYa.

Tail lights work, brake lights don't... sometimes

Intermit problems can be a night mare. It does sound like the brake light switch is what causing the problem. You have a good chance a voltage drop test would tell if the switch is what causing the problem. Depending on the price of the brake light switch I would take a gamble and replace it.

Bbrake lights worked then didn't. replced fuse

You have a brake light switch under the brake pedal arm. When you apply brakes the arm presses a switch and turns them on. The switch may have went bad. Easy to replace. It's works like the push button in a refrig "open the door the lights come on" close it and the lights go off.

Having problems with brake lights. The hazard light and blinkers are working when applied. When I apply brake the centre light on hatch door works but the two side lights don't work

Well the fact the high mount/3rd brake light works proves brake light switch is working. I would suspect factory trailer connector wire which feeds off tailight is broken. Follow wire from plug back to left taillight where it is exposed to the elements.

Check the wiring going to the chassis holding the brake light bulbs. In the trunk when setting groceries and other items inside someone may have knocked a wire loose.
When you say none of the brake lights did you mean turn signals and parking lights as well on thefront and back?
