With light switch on, test the wires leading up to the mentioned lights with a test light(cost about 5 or 6 bucks at wal-mart) that way u can eliminate any corrosion questions and get to the source quicker, if test light indicates that the wire is hot, than check connection areas for any wear and tear and possible carbon corrosion. Check lightbulbs, my license plate light stopped working and wire was hot, but wouldnt turn on due to the housing base, got too dryrotted and wouldnt function propery, had to rig it up, but works now.

Just to be sure, check out the bulbs and sockets.
Make sure the two dots sockets (look into the base) is using two dot bulbs.
Check the single brake switch that activate by the brake.
If you has a meter then please check out the contact points.
Sometime this switch move out of aligment.
Dirt can also be part of the problem.
===== I will apply 12V power to the brake switch socket and make sure the blubs light to rule out wire problem first.
Please post more infor on the comment window.
