I'm sorry you are having problems with your vehicle. I will try to help.I'm a full time mechanic and have been a mechanic for over 20 yrs and I work part-time here on JustAnswer to help you and others repair their own vehicles, and I get credited by your ratings.. So before leaving the site make sure and leave me a rating. You can still reply to me as many times as neeed, even after the rating.. I will need for you to be my hands and eyes since I'm not there.So I'll check tomorrow when I get to work, but I don't remember the brake lights having a dedicated fuse. The problem is most likely your brake switch is bad.
On the pedal you will find a flat plate that pushes up on the switch. If you want to test it then remove the electrical connector from the switch and jump it and if your brake lights come on. Then your switch is bad.Let me know if you have any questions.Thanks
