Are all other lights working? (turn signals, reverse lights, tail/running lights, single rear fog)

A couple other things you can check:

You can remove the spade connectors from the brake switch and short them together (careful not to short to ground on the nearby metal bracing - will pop fuse quickly!). Then check for voltage back at taillight assembly wires.
You can pull back the headliner in the rear corners and check for voltage to 3rd brake light - would at least indicate some wiring is good that far back.
