Most likely its the brake light switch located on the brake pedal . but check all your fuses first as it could be nothing more then a blown fuse

2004 Trailblazer lower taillights not working upper work fine.

With the condition of the screws you should check to make sure there is a good connection to the lower bulbs for both power and ground.

Brake lights are not working only tail lights are lit

Check for power at wire that plugs into taillight assembly. If it's good, you need circuit boards or bulbs for taillight assembly. Circuit boards go bad often.

All four rear light bulbs are working but the brake lights don't come on when the pedal is depressed. The upper center brake light works but not the ones on the sides.

If the upper center works then the switch at the brake pedal is working properly. Maybe only two of the taillights are equipped with dual filament bulbs. If this is the case ( and it usually is) then you have two burnt out brake bulbs. They are dual filament and only one is lit (the lower intensity one) when the lights are on. Then the higher intensity filament lights when you hit the brakes. Open your trunk and take one out and look at it. Sometimes you can see the filament just hanging in there unconnected to one of the two posts. That means it is burnt out.

Both bottom brake lights don't work

I believe the brake light on the hatch works off a different fuse then the taillight brakes. Double check to see if there is more then one fuse for brake lights. By pulling the fuse you changed and leaving it out, see if the hatch light comes on or not; this may answer at least one question if it is one of the fuses. If your running lights in those bulbs are coming on; you probably have a good ground, if not it may be a loose ground wire.

Brake lights in rear will not work

Do you have a trailer plug? Look for corrosion around taillight plug under truck in the back, PULL IT APART to see if there is any corrosion. If you find none, than take the taillight housing out and run a external wire from a clean spot on frame to the ground on housing, it could be a ground issue. Did you test light the break light switch power in power out?

Messed up taillights and brakelights

First, check your Alternator! All lights are grounded and a bad alternator charge the ground causing all kinds of weird behaviour.....

I would guess the brake fuse ( this does not use the same fuse as the tail lights/blinkers) or the ground for the brake light bulb.
