It sounds like a problem on white wire going to brake lights. Unplug the passenger side brake light and while pressing pedal the white wire should have power and black wire should have ground. If both are good check connector and replace bulbs. If missing power on the white wire then follow wire to find where it is broken/damaged. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have any questions, thanks.

I'll also mention I'd expect around a $300 repair at a shop. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
