Question about Suzuki XL7
If the tail lights are still working the problem is probably the brake light switch. It could be bad of just have disconnected wires. Normally it would be located at the top of the brake peddle arm under the dash, but some put them on the master brake cylinder under the hood in front of the driver. To test disconnect the two wires and put them together with the ignition on. Have someone watch if the lights come on. Good luck.

take the bulb back out have someone sit in car apply brake get your self a circuit tester and check to see if this circuit is carrying efficient 12 volt current! some times in cold weather these bulbs get hot with long period of breaking and when released condensate and rust begins and you get what you have perhaps bad socket! this would be a ideal location to begin and probably end,

look up above your brake pedal and you will see the switch.. It will either between the firewall and the pedal arm (switch moves in when you brake).. Or it will be between the pedal arm and the dash (switch moves out when you brake)

Check the brake light switch (aka stop light switch) located on the upper portion of the brake pedal. It has one plug in wire on it, if it's bad, you have no brake lights, not an expensive part.

SOURCE: brake lights not working,
Assuming the wiring to the brake lights is serviceable, you will find that the brake light switch, which is activated by the brake pedal for the brake lights, will have failed and will need to be replaced.
Just ensure you first replace the fuse and both brake light bulbs as an initial step and then re-check to ensure you still have no lights.
