Brake Light Issues...

I have a 2005 Ford Escape and the brake light went out. I replaced both bulbs and the brake lighs still do not work. The reverse, back lights, and turn signals work fine.

We've checked the fuses and they are fine as well.

Any thoughts on what the problem is and how to fix it?

Thanks!

Likely the brake light switch under the dash. Should be on a bracket of some sort so that when you step on the brake pedal, the switch is activated. Do the flashers work? Is the high mount brake light working?

The question about the third brake light is needed as the side brake lights run through the turn signal switch and the third brake light or high mounted brake light doesn't go through the switch so if it works then you have an answer..... maybe
