That is the way it goes. Really about the only way is to remove the fuses one at a time and see when the brake lights go out. If the lights are not working, just pull fuses until you find one that is blown.

Don't forget to check under the hood on the passenger side fender- there's another fuse block there!

Check the brake light switch located above the brake pedal, sometimes they go bad, delicate reed switches inside. when you buy the new part - READ INSTRUCTIONS FIRST!! It's a self adjusting part, and you only get one shot at installation, it's an easy fix. Do NOT push the plunger down on the switch, if you try to reset it you will damage the switch, just follow directions word for word and your golden.
