The bulbs do not need to be replaced! The answer to this problem is believe it or not in the turn signal lever, or multi-function switch. It is extremely common on these cars, and usually mis-diagnosed. Try this before going any farther. Back the vehicle up to a wall, or have a person stand behind the car, and pull the turn signal lever slightly towards you as if you were switching between hi and low beams. I guarantee that when you put just a little pressure on the lever your brake lights will work. If you want the problem fixed, you need to have the switch (and lever arm) replaced from inside the steering column, and you need someone to remove the airbag to do this. The switch is roughly $200 from an aftermarket parts store. If you learn to drive your car and just know that when you brake you can pull back on the lever to make the lights work great, I did for a few years in mine. But I guarantee that is the answer to your problem

Open the hood; look on the driver's side, toward the back of the engine compartment, where you will see a large drum mounted onto the firewall. On the front of this drum( the brake power vacuum booster) you will see a small, rectangular block with a plastic tank mounted on top. This is your brake fluid reservoir. On the side you will see 2 lines cast into the plastic; a ' full' line and an ' add ' line. Remove this cap ( black plastic ) and fill to the top ( full ) line. Replace cap and look over the system , since the brake system is designed to not need additional fluid as your brake pads wear normally. If you need to keep adding fluid, you may have a leak which could cause some serious braking issues. You may also want to have your brake pads inspected as you may need them replaced, as well as having the brake rotors turned ( resurfaced).
I hope this helps!!
