Check fuses

Unplug connector and check connections

Do a bsi reset

I agree if the BSI sees blown bulbs it will shut down the circuit and even after bulb replacement it stays shut down you may just need a BSI reset

My rear 2 brake lights turned out to be the earth wire on just the right hand side was broken off the connector block, although the 3rd brake light was still working, I worked around it, by drilling a hole internal into the bodywork, and sanding it slightly to bear metal, just a tiny hole, then screw a wire into that hole, then solder it directly to the grid thingy that houses the blubs, all earths in the car lead to the bodywork anyway.

Another thing to try, and this is a mistake I also made, sometimes its the simple things, make sure you have dual element bulbs in the brake light connector, mine is the upper most connector for brake lights, 1.6 2008 petrol.
