Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

I see that your question has been up for an extended time without a response and while although my information on this vehicle is limited I would like to try to help.

If the brake lamps aren't working either the bulbs are bad, they're missing ground, they may be missing power due to a wiring issue, blown fuse or bad brake switch.

The bulbs have been replaced with new?
