There should be a switch located on the shaft that the brake pedal is attached to. Check the wiring and listen for a click when the brake is depressed. If everything seems okay, use a wire to jump across the two contacts and see if the brake lights go on. If this fails, then you have a broken wire somewhere in your brake light circuit. Good luck.
If you are talking about the dash indicator light, it should go out if all the brake lights are functioning properly. Don't forget the brake light in the rear window.

The brake lights and tail lights are separate wiring systems. Even some of the bulbs may have two separate bulbs in the same glass housing. If the bulbs are in fact working, then the next step would be to test the brake switch under the dash. When you depress the brake pedal the switch is pushed creating a connection to turn on the brake lights.
They are different sets of bulbs. You'll have to check the bulbs and wiring if necessary.
