Jeep Cherokee REAR LAMP FAILURE II

Q. I have a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the brake lights will not work when I step on the brake pedal. I have replaced all the bulbs, and checked the fuse. The only brake lights that work are the ones at the top of the rear door. I have turn lights, running lights, and back up lights but no brake lights and I get a REAR LAMP FRAILER on my message center. Can you help me?

Thanks,
Tudy
