Brake lights not working 2013 Forte

Hello, all of my brake lights recently quit working on my 2013 forte. I've checked the fuse, it is not blown. The passenger side light has been out for a while (I tried replacing the bulb with no luck). However the other two brake lights still worked, until recently. Now they are all out, the fuse is not blown, and the brake switch appears to be working (car wont shift from park unless I depress the brake pedal, cruise control shuts off when I depress the brake pedal). Any other thoughts on what it could be before I start busting out the multimeter?

You say the brake switch appears to be normal. Appears to me would mean, time to take it to a shop and let them check it out to be sure.. Since no brake light you probably will have to have it towed. You could also have a wire harness issue.. Just my 2 cents.
