No brake Lights! Help!!!!

Hey guys new to the forum, been reading the forums for weeks tho, excellent place, i love it. i have a dilemma here on my 1/99 250 powerstroke. Not sure how long its been this way but i noticed i do not have ANY brake lights, this is including the third light on the cab. But my signals, hazards and running lights work fine. I figured id start at the brake switch, bought a new one replaced the old and no change. next i decided to take the multifunction switch out, clean up the guts inside of it, and throw it back in, No change... All fuses have been checked, bulbs are new. Any ideas?! i plan on going out there tomorrow with a test light to see whats going on but maybe someone here has gone thru this before. Also note that i did replaced the rear bumper last week, i had to hard wire the licence plate lights to the running lights, but this is still working and i was no where near the wires to the actual brake light. Do the Turn signals share the same wire as the brake lights? anyone have any input on this would be grateful! thanks guys!

do you kno if this happened right after you replaced the bumber? if so i would be looking for a broken/pinched wire. and test the fuses with a test light, fuses can be decieving sometimes when just pulling and looking at them. ive a couple times thought i had a good fuse looking at it then while testing it turned out to be a bad one. hope this helps
