Question about 2001 Nissan Sentra
There are a few options to troubleshoot this problem.
This could be an issue with fuse, wiring or control switch.
When this happened to me it was the control switch.
If you go into the drivers side of the car and go under the steering wheel to where the brake is located, follow the bar that the brake is attached to up to the switch. The switch is a small box that has a pin that depresses when the bar that is attached to the brake rests on. When you step on the brake (in this case use your hand) the pin should come back out of the little box which then activates your brake lights. If you see the pin sticking then that could be the problem.
In my car the switch was sticking because the little box started to come apart. Rather than replacing I used a couple of plastic zip ties to tighten the box back into place and works like new.

This is a common GM specific problem. Your turn signal switch contains an elaborate networking device that has to cancel brakelights while running a turn light. Often times the ground within the turn signal switch is lost causing your situation. After investigating such other possibilities as fuses and loose grounds it may become necessary to replace the turn signal switch. Thank you, Dana
