Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! If there is power leaving the brake switch on the white/tan wire then the problem has to be an open circuit between the brake switch and the lamps, or the bulbs themselves. The most likely cause would be bulbs but wiring is definitely possible. The turn signals working doesn't mean that the bulbs are good because the turn signals light two separate bulbs and the brake lights are a single bulb light a completely separate filament from turn signals. If you haven't replaced the bulbs or removed the lamp housings and checked/tested all four dual filament bulbs that's the first step. If you don't have power on the white/tan wire at the lamps then you have an open circuit between the switch and lamps.
