Need help!!

Im having issues with my taillights. They work when I turn on the lights but they will not illuminate when I hit the brakes. So essentially I have no brake lights. Does anybody have any insight or what not. The only thing I can think of is a fuse but my car soesnt have the diagram. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Brake switch. It's a 2 wire button type switch at the top of your brake pedal. Shouldn't be more than $20 from the local auto parts store I'd figure

Do you know if there is any way to test it? Thanks again for your help.

If you  can get to it to push it in the brake lights should come on. Or take it out and jump the pins to see if the brake lights illuminate.  All it does is make a connection when you press the pedal down

It did the other day but on my way to work it was blairing for no reason, I had to pull over and unplugged the wires from the actual horn. Is the horn and the brake lights tied to the same circuit or something. I was thinking the reason for the horn blairing was because the connections got wet and made a connection somehow.
