Check bulbs first and then check ground, check to see if they are getting power, if not have a pro look atit.

Having the same issue. My tail light and turn indicators work but when you press the brake, the light just turns off. And you can forget about there being an easy to replace bulb as it seems to be embedded deep into the plastic lens housing that is welded shut so you can't get into it. Hoping there is a fix so I don't have to spend hundreds replacing the whole tail light assembly just to fix a $3 bulb or LEP cluster . SMH

To remove the bulb you have to take the taillight asssy off whichis pretty easy. However have yoru brake light switch and turn signal switch checked. It could also b e a bad ground as well.
