Do your rear turn signals work? If so the wiring is intact from the turn signal switch (in the steering column) to the brake lights. Check for power going from the brake light switch to the turn signal switch. If all is ok there, turn signal switch is probably bad. Even if you're not using your turn signals power goes through the turn signal switch to the brake lights, just in case you do decide to signal a turn. HTH. -Jim

It could be a grounding issue. I would also check for a box not far from the tail lights that all the wires go into that may have some breaks in the wires. I have had to change out the box before because of loss of lights.
