Does your high mount (third) brake light work? if it does then you probably have a wiring issue between the brake switch and the taillight assembly. follow the wires back from the taillights and see if you can find a splice block. with the car shut off (brake lights should work that way and it's safer to test things in a way that the car can't run you over while you do it) get somebody to depress the brake pedal and wiggle or tap on the splice block and see if lights come on. if they still won't then pull a bulb out and test for continuity between ground (pretty much any exposed chassis metal you can find, not through paint) and the part of socket that contacts base of bulb, that's ground side. if you have ground then test for 12 volts dc between power side of socket, part that contacts side of bulb, and ground. if you have two element bulb, like turn signals and brake lights in one bulb then you need to find 12 v in both places. should be easy in one place, you didn't say that your turn signals didn't work, will give you an idea what you need to do on brake side. hope that helps

SOURCE: brake lights wont work.
try taking a wire brush to all the ground wire ports on your vehicule specialy the ones in the rear of the vehicule sometimes rusty ground wires make very bad connections. if so when you are done put some grease on them to avoid future rust. hope this coul help you.
