Check the grounds and bulbs in your taillights.

Yep check the grounds, the taill lights are grounded by the bolts that hold them to the body.

at least it was the brake lights and not the brakes

could be as simple as something in the brake light switch (could be checked with continuity tester)

if it was me I would re-check the fuses and follow the wires (use a continuity tester to make sure all wires/grounds are ok if you have one) and check the bulbs/bulb sockets
