Hey Im Rachael with a 1996 Mustang

So I have a 1996 Mustang. The problem is though my brake lights won't work. I have changed the fuses, the bulbs and the sensor. I have disconnected the battery and reset the computer but nothing have worked. None of us have any idea what's going on.
Any ideas would be great?
