Last time I ran into this problem, the wires attached to the brake light switch connector on the brake pedal were broken (the insulation looked good but when wiggled there was an obvious fault). I spliced the wires back together and the brake lamps worked! Hope this helps, Radioman

There is a short in the wiring or in the bulb. Try changing the bulbs first.
Check to see if Brake lamps work when brake pedal is pressed. If not gear shifter is locked for safety so replace fuse or repair brake lamp switch.
if it isn't a fuse or lamp problem, check the brake lamp switch on the brake pedal, if you unplug the switch, and jumper the connection, and you have brake lamps, replace the switch...

You have to unbolt the entire tail lamp assembly to change the bulbs. Unbolt the tail lamps from inside the corners of the bed, replace the light bulbs, bolt the tail lamps back in place.
Technically yes.But you need to check the practicality of it.
If you are referring to the brake light then the brake light switch is stuck.
I have a similar problem. How do I get to replace the side/brake/fog bulbs in the fitting in the rear lower skirt? Can't see how to get at the lamps at all! Appreciate an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks
I had to replace my brake lights. It is very simple. I went to the local auto parts store and told them what I needed and the sales person followed me to the car to identify the correct bulbs. Accessing the lamps are via the trunk. A couple of quarter turns to remove and replace it and the job is done. To the above: The third brakelight can only be located from the inside of the car you dipsh!t.

To replace lamps the cluster must be removed.
Changing the lamps is pretty straight forward. There is a cover over the lamp assembly, remove it. Then, turn the tail lamp (with the connector) counter clockwise about 1/4 turn. Pull the assembly forward, then replace the lamp. Installation is the reverse of removal. Hope this helps.
