It could also be a short circuit, usually in the tail light area as that's exposed to a lot of moisture. Reason I think that is because the brake lights aren't part of the multifunction switch...

Do you have an owner's manual? Fuse locations are listed there.

I'd guess there is a chafed wire or corrosion in or near the tail lamp assembly. A couple months ago had to replace some stuff on the wife's '08 Liberty.

Have you tried testing the voltage on those ports? From there you can run down where the contacts are open.
