Have you tested the brake light switch? it is located at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to, it is very common for the wires to that switch to break inside the plastic insulation, the switch testing goes like this, there should be 12 volts present at both sides of the switch with the brake pedal depressed and one side without the pedal depressed.

Sounds like your brake light switch has gone bad. It is located on your brake pedal and is easy to change and relatively inexpensive. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

-Make sure the correct fuse.
And did you check the bulb? If yes the bulb are good.
-next check power at the bulb. Ask a helper to help you brake and
check any power there or not. If yes there is power. Then the problem is NOT Ground.

Good Luck

Need to change brake lights on the car.


Open your trunk, you will see 2 screws that retain the brake light lens. Pull the felt on the side down, and you will see 2 plastic snap in clips. Remove the 2 screws and then use a pair of pliers to compress the plastic snap in clips to release them. From there you can remove the lens and replace the bulbs.
