I don't think one has do with the other. your brake lights work off of a air pressure switch that will be in the air line off the brake valve, but also check you turn signals and 4 way flashers as the brake lights pass thru those switches also, unless you have different brake and turn lights

They probably knocked the wire off the sensor when they were working on it. Call the mechanic/business you paid to have it fixed.

I’d agree with Fritz’s. Doubt that they have anything to do with each other. Brake lights work off switches not sensors.
You say you checked all fuses. Does that mean in the pass side rear compartment? Think that’s where you’ll find them.

Dennis,
All transducers, transmitters, and switches are sensors.

I was told the rear passenger side was for the house battery's that the left front under the driver was for all automotive 12 volt system. I have been trying to track down all grounds to clean and reattach no luck yet.

There is that switch/sensor near the brake pedal. When you push down on the pedal it makes the brake lights come on. Maybe it's different on your model though. Worth a look.
