As a thought have you checked the switch on the brake pedal, that turns on the brake lights....

Usually up under the dash with a couple of wires from it, with a button being pushed by the shaft of the brake pedal....

waffled on about something:

If you unplug the wire from it and short the 2 pins together on the wire, the brake lights should come on.
If they do then your switch is kaput.
Dodgy.
