I have tried to clean all the connectors of the bulbs to correct the problem, but my brake lights were never on.
I talked to a mechanic, and he said i need to change brake switch under brake pedal...
does anyone know how to do it?

It sounds as if the Infamous Parking Light Relay (that Mustard Colored Demon that lives in the fuse and relay box, located on drivers side and in the engine compartment) has struck. Remove the relay, remember orientation, turn it over, and if there is a cardboard cover ,gently remove that and look at the soldered connections, chances are you have some brken connections. If you solder, reflow these connections, if not I suggest a $40.00 investment (approx) in a new relay.
