No brake lights

Hello I'm new here and could use some help, I just bought a 1990 Fleetwood Bounder 34' it's the Ford frame.
On my way home from buying it my wife was following me and notice'd I had no brake lights, I also have no 4 way flashers, I've checked all fuses and replaced the Hazard flasher, (turn signals work) all bulbs are good. Any ideas what to check next. Thanks

When I bought mine both back-up lights were out - I put in new bulbs and all has been well for over 3 years now. Try the easy stuff first - use a volt meter and check for the 12V. Verify there is a good ground - ground may be common to 4 ways and brake lights. Maybe call the previous owner and ask if he has any ideas.

Did you buy this from a dealer or a private individual? If you bought it from a dealer take it back to them and tell them to fix it. It is illegal for a dealer to sell a vehicle that does not meet state safety requirements, which functioning brake lights are required in every state.

It could be the signal light switch that's bad even though the signals still work. The brake lights go through the signal switch.

Thanks for the ideas but I've done all of them, bulbs are good the turn signals use the same filiment on the bulb and they work.
No I bought this private and still have the add which states that EVERYTHING WORKS FINE, also I just found that the heater does not work. I called the previous owner and he said he would pay for the repairs. I hope so but I'm still going to work on the brake lights myself.

fixed it

I fixed the brake lights MY WAY I could not get to the brake light switch so I got the wire plug off the switch and pluged in 2 new wires , made my own bracket and installed a switch for an early chevy. The whole thing took about 1 hour and $8.00 and it works great.
