SOURCE: NO BRAKE LIGHTS
You could likewise check the brake switch underneath the dash. It is activated when the brake pedal is pushed. It is a spring loaded switch and is normally off. If the sprin is defective/missing then the switch will not activate.
In some instances problems similar to yours involves the connector (most likely) somewhere in the trunk area or the wires themselves (least likely). Another possibility is the bulb socket which might have corrossion, but the chance of both going bad at the same time is very remote.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: How to fix a brake light
all lights must be working in order for the lights to work in some cars...it's possible that you may have a bad ground wire to the light socket or the you may not be getting power to that socket, which means you have a bad wire. Check to see if you're getting power to that socket with an electrical tester first.

have you checked the earthing continuity-if it's this other bulbs may also partly light when brakes used
Check continuity of live from center to lh & rh lights and/or is there a live at those lights

Try cleaning the contacts with a wire brush if they appear dirty and then apply a small amount of silicone to the bulb contacts also try replacing the bulb as sometimes they don't appear to be blown but are

It could be the relay, which is a yellow box located under the carpeting in the trunk on the left side. It is a problem common to your model. Also, check the brake switch's (behind the brake pedal) functionality (12V present with key at ACC or ON and continuity between wires when button engaged).
i hope this helps
