Check and see if you have brake lights. If not then the system is not getting a brake on signal, could be a fuse or a switch or even broken wiring in the brake signal circuit.

Checked break lights...break light is not coming on.

Also what does the "Brake Proportioning" message indicate?

It is telling you that you have lost equalization brake line pressure in the system. I would not worry about that right now, it might go away after you fix the voltage signal for the brake light circuit. Have you checked the brake light fuse?

Will check the break light fuse/switch. Thanks.
