Question about Cars & Trucks
Brake light Switch near the brake pedal shaft is out of adjustment, or broken or wire disconnected or very bad connection. Otherwise a bad connection to the taillight assembly or a break in the wire between the switch and Taillight. Jumper the switch to test whether that is the problem. Test the Tail light by jumper from known good power to test whether it's the wire from brake light switch to the Tail light assembly.

If both the bulbs and fuse are good, the most likely problem is the switch mounted at the top of the brake pedal arm.

Have you checked the brake light switch under the brake pedal? It may be out of alignment with the pedal lever or dislodged from it's connector. If it is still in the right position, check if pedal travel compresses the switch, if not adjust it so it does. If everything is in order and it still doesn't work, replace the switch. Hope this helps. Best wishes.

SOURCE: Tail Light Problem
If you get power at center terminal with a test light, (careful, don't touch side of socket.) then try grounding (clamping) test light to outside of socket (which is your ground for bulb) . If test light doesn't light, it's bad ground.
