Make sure those and no other bulbs are blown. Recheck fuses.

Do you have brake lights? Check the grounds for those lights and bulb sockets, look for breaks or shorting out with them all the way to fuse block. May need a short finder.

No brake lights ....will do

Could be multifunction/combination switch. Fancy name for blinker stalk on column. It controls almost everything accept 3rd brake light. If you lose brake lights at tail and not 3rd brake, id test that. Can also effect blinkers on wrong side, no Cruise Control, hazard lights on always, wiper controls etc. Unfortunatly its a pain to replace, pull steering wheel in many cases, and expensive for what it is. $100-250
