I copied this from an earlier question:

What could be wrong with brake lights, if not the switch, bulbs, or fuses?

The brake lights have stopped working in my Ford Explorer. The bulbs are new, the brake switch is new, the fuses are not blown. What else is there to check?

You need to find where the power stops. Use a test light at the sockets. If no power, go to the wire to the socket. When you find where power goes in but doesn't come out, you have your answer. Assuming there is one answer. There is also a possibility of a ground problem. Good luck.

It could be one of many possibilities. I had a brand new s-10 that I was working on and it would blow out the fuse at weird times. I ended up chasing it down to a bolt that was left under the carpet from the factory. the bolt had rubbed through the wire and would short out and pop the fuse.. sometimes electrical problems can be a bear......
