Brake lights not working.

Hazards working OK.
Turn signals working OK.
3rd brake light working OK.
Replaced both tail/stop light housings (new) and all bulbs.
Replaced multi-function turn signal switch (new).
Did NOT replace brake light switch yet - all research and symptoms pointed to bad turn signal switch.

Any ideas for troubleshooting?

Inspect and test the turn/hazard switch-The bottom lights circuit has to go thru the turn and hazard switch before the bottom brake lights to lite up-At the turn and hazard switch the white wire should have power when brake pedal is depressed no power there-the wire is open from the T/H switch to the brake switch-
