OK i have the same problem but I have replaced both circuit boards in the rear tail lights for starters and checked every known fuse I have and every one is good. I've checked the break pedal switch that control the third break light and that works perfect. I have running lights, turn signals, hazards lights and reverse lights. The only lights that don't work on my car are the break lights on both sides. And I can't figure out what the problem is for the life of me. My mechanic looked at every thing and even used a probe to test the problem even jumped it from the break pedal switch to the rear break light circuit board and every time he did it, it would blow a fuse or not work. He had told me to give him a few day to see if he can look it up on some Mechanic web site that he's a member to. But I think he's just blowing smoke sort to say. I watched him do all this work and I'm great full he didn't charge me. But know the stress is just to much. So I ask the car GODs please please help me. If any one can figure this out my name is MIKE and i can be reached at 215-260-7986 thank you in advance.
LEFT REAR TAIL LIGHT IN OP, HAVE BRAKE LIGHTS, NO TAG LIGHT, RIGHT SIDE IS FINE
My brake light got so hot the it exploded, I changed the light and a month later it was out again and when checked that light exploded too causing the plastic cover to crack. Had to replacing the entire light housing.
