Angry No brake lights

I have a 97 ranger and have NO brake lights at all. I have changed fuses and sensor on brake pedal still nothing. What else could it be?

They are good. Changed them just in case but could not see any problem with them.

Talking Re: No brake lights

Found out that the wiring to the brake lights was ROTTEN. It had pulled appart in the coating so there was no connection. Ran new wire from front to back and to each light and now everything works!
