Problem with rear brake light

I’ve encountered a problem with my 2012 Nissan Armada SL brake lights not working. I started by replacing the 2 rear bulbs and still didn’t work. I was recommended to te by replacing the brake light switch attached to the brake pedal as not only one but both brake lights are not working. I changed the brake light switch but that didn’t fix the lights to start working. I didn’t move the car until the next morning and at that point for some reason the vehicle felt like it suddenly had the brakes locking up which freaked me out. I managed to slowly return home and have been looking around for a solution. The only thing I recall doing to replace the switch was I kept pressed down onto pedal as I removed old switch and replaced with new one and attached back into slot. After much thinking I decided to remove the new switch and repeat the replacement of it but instead of maintaining the pedal pressed in I left it in normal position. I then removed the battery terminals for over 15 minutes as someone recommended and then after I decided to test drive the vehicle far enough to see if it seized up the brakes and at this point it seems to not have no longer seize up. I only did one test run and plan to retry it but does anyone know what could of caused it to seize up just for replacing the switch. Also some I still am with the original problem of my brake light still not working. Can anyone direct me of what else to check? I have thought of maybe having to check a fuse but not sure the exact one to check; would it be a fuse in the glove box or one in the engine compartment and which one it would be on the fuse box. Is it a regular fuse or one of those rectangular fuses with the clear see thru tops. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
