Should check the fuse but probably not the cause. Your blinkers work so the bulbs are good for the brake lights. There is a brake light switch that the brake pedal activates when you step on the brake pedal, that could be bad, or the brake light relay in the fuse box.

first answer good. Use hand signals until fixed...that is dangerous humans will brake when they see lights not when you stop. I suggest using manual emergency light switch when you stop...You will be ticketed too. unsafe vehicle!
