Check for power at the brake light switch located at the brake pedal, one of the wires at the switch should be 12 Volts (if not a fuse is most likely bad). If the switch has only two wire connect a paper clip across the two wires and see if the brake lights now come on, if so the brake light switch is bad.

Had the same problem. In the engine compartment, close to the driver is a black box full of fuses. It is the 20 amp that went out, I replaced it with a 30amp and have not had an issue yet.
