Brake light problem 88 mercury

I have an 88 mercury grand marquis. The brake lights don't work. The turn signals work ok. They use the same bulbs. I checked the fuse its ok. I don't know where the brake light switch is to check it. any other ideas.

found swithch

ok I found the switch, but I'd have to be a midget to get to it. Is there some trick to getting to it so I can check if its working correctly. I can't even get my hand on the connector.

How did you check the fuses?
Use a voltage tester to make sure the brake light fuse is good. The turn signal fuse is a different because the brake light fuse is hot at all times and the TS fuse is hot when the ignition is on.
If it is blown there is a reason.
You may need to hire a midget to test the brake light switch.
