    im sure its a 10 amp (red) just pull fuse out mate and they are see through with either a straight bit of metal or an S shaped in the middle you will be able to see if its blown as it will be split and useualy look melted, there should be a key on the back off the cover with all numbered fuses and what they are for

    have you checked bulbs ok? if fuses are fine and bulbs are then you need to check for a live at your back lamps while someone presses footbrake if theres no live there then it could be either a broken wire or brake switch on pedal, do your rear sidelights work? on them they have stop and tail bulbs meaning your sidelights are your brake lights aswell but the brake filament in the bulb can go but the sidelight work fine, when you press footbrake have you got ignition on? just thinking off all possibilities as its hard when im not looking at the motor lol

    lol, yeah side lights are all ok, i try brake lights with engine running, i find it strange cus both brake lights are not working on side of van, and the brake light on top of door isnt working, so it would be to much of a coincidence for all 3 bulbs to pack in. Thing about is you dont know how long ive been with out them. Ive only had van 2 mts.

    puzzled lol if i was there i could probz sort it im the van man at work lol but without seeing it im not sure, does sound like a brake switch, check the bulbs mate make sure they are all 12v if theres a 24v in there it would blow them mind you it would blow sidelights aswell but its worth a look,i have had a van in before that all 3 brake bulbs blew that was on a 59 plate, you will find them door ones always go the vivaro didnt put special strong bulbs in like the transit to avoid them popping when the rear doors are slammed shut.
