Brake/tail lights don't work, but turn signal and reverse lights do.

I ran into a handicapping problem with my 2004 wrx wagon. My brake/tail lights (both sides and the center mount) don't work but literally everything else does. No CEL or fault codes. No fast blink. I've replaced the bulbs with led's and incandescents, nothing fixed. I don't think it's the brake switch because it wouldn't (or at least shouldn't) affect the tail light. If anyone has any solutions/suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated

Did you check the fuses? Have you installed a radio or amp lately? When you installed the LEDs did any of them not light up on the first try? Installing LEDs backwards can blow a fuse with product not designed with reverse polarity protection. It's also known that the clock/radio/tail lights can trip each other during and install/removal.
