Something you may not realise is that the brake light bulb is often one bulb with two elements. One of the elements will be for the brake and the other will be for the tail lighting for example so,when tested, the actual bulb will still light up because the second element is unaffected. Make sure that the 'blown' bulb that you are actually changing is not in fact your fog lamp. This will not automatically light up when you test your lights as you have to operate this light separately (similarly to indicator lights). So the fog lamp bulb will appear to be the only one not lit up when you test your lights. Find the bulb with two elements inside and change that one. Sounds obvious (and may be obvious to many) but it's a common mistake. Hope this helps!.
