    first ill do the obvious one... are the bulbs good? (i have seen it too many damn times where someone is driving around with multiple blown brake lights... love it when only the 3rd light works... or even better when there are multiple bulbs in the third light and only one of THEM works)

    but anyway im going to assume (hope) you are not one of those retards... so we will move on to the next steps

    there are really only 2 parts you need to worry about... the switch and the wiring

    brake switch could have gone bad -- simply replace the switch

    a wire leading back to the lights could have cracked or gotten cut or corroded to the point that it does not pass power -- repair the break or cut or do a bypass of the bad section... or run a new wire


    the switch is located on the pedal assembly
    not sure what wire you need to look for
    bust out the wiring schematic and a multimeter
