Unplug the brake light switch and test for power, if you have power jumper the connector and look too see if the brake lights now work, if they do you either have a defective brake light switch or it is adjusted wrong, if you don't then try turning on and off the 4 way switch a few times you may have turn signal switch that is not completing the circuit when the signals are off so no brake lights. If you don't have power to the brake light switch then check the fuse and wiring to the brake light switch connector. If it is blown then you need to find out why it blew ie shorted wiring, shorted sockets, cross connected lamps etc. HTH
