try the stop light switch which is located on the brake pedal... i would say that your pedal is not pushing the switch properly.... ask someone to look at your taillights while you pull your brake pedal back... if they come on then adjust your switch

good luck

ok so lets clear this up

your tailights (not brake lights/stop lights) don't come on at all? when you turn your lights on

try getting a replacement box... sits below the right rear tailight usually

what's the weather like there? rain alot?... do your taillights leak water.. do you have a rusty trunk/boot/hatch
