make sure you are getting voltage out of the brake light switch. If so, check if the voltage is getting to the socket. Best way is a simple volt meter or test light.

I found the harness plug behind the interior panel was burnt up due to having a bad connection.

plug was on the driver side, you have to pull the rear seat and the panel to get at it.

Check to see if where the brake light switch button goes there is a blue or gray plastic stopper there. it keeps the button in the closed position which in turn keeps the brake light off. One of the most common problems in all Asian Cars.
