Brake Lights Not Working

So today after I rotated my tires I found that my brake lights don't work. Here is the info: I have an after market 3rd brake light (they're lights that go in the unused lug holes in the spare tire and spliced into the former 3rd brake light's wiring), the wires that go to the lights that go into the lug holes were pinched, the regular taillight brake lights don't work as well as the 3rd brake light, the running lights work, the signals work, all of the lights have been working as of last night. Say the 3rd brake light was not making a connection, is it wired so that the taillight brake lights wouldn't work either? Or is it just a coincidence that I found this while rotating my tires?

Any help is appreciated as I have no idea where to start. Thanks.

Any idea where the fuse would be for me to check it? Okay that's what I was thinking. Who in the world would design a brake light system that disables every light when one burns out or something lol.
