Rear lights don't work.Change the light bulbs-nothing.Which one of the fuses is for the rear lights?
Check on the left side of your steering for the fuse box. If not there, check the left kick panel by your left foot. The panel door usually has a schematic that tells you what each fuse does. If no brake fuse there, check the fuse box under the hood. You may have a bad tail light relay also. If fuses and relays are not the issue, have someone hit the brake, and test the bulb sockets for power. If no power, start checking for broken wires and grounds. Check around the left hinge of the trunk. I think the harness may run by there. That's usually a good pinch point. If no broken wires, test the brake switch for power that is up under the dash. Will be at the top of the pedal.
The cabin fuse box is behind the flip-down coin holder up under the dash, left side of steering wheel. Brake lights fuse #23 -15 amp Tail lights #18-15 amp ..if your tail light fuse is blown your instrument cluster lights will also be out
