Underneath the vehicle, on the left side, there is a harness where the tail lights clip together. Also if there is any kind of towing plug it to will be clipped in at the same spot. It is rather typical for these connections to get corroded, or for the wires to get damaged or brittle. I would recommend checking this first.

I believe this car has a bulb with two fillaments for side and brake lights, it is unlikely that they are both burnt out at the same time but possible. It is more likely that the bulb holder or a ground connection is rusted or loose. The fuse generally covers all rear lights.
This is just a guess , so please don't give me a bad rating. to me it sounds like the switch on the brake pedal is broken ( stuck on ) so brake lights are on , but have burned up the rear bulbs. Highmount light might be LED so runs cooler and does not burn out. Try new bulbs in the tail lights.
Try and locate the fuse that controls your brake lights. If you have no service information inside an owners manual, remove each fuse one at a time to check for any burnt out. Do not switch any fuse locations, or replace any fuse with a different amperage rating. example, if you find a 10A fuse that is burnt, replace it with a 10A fuse only. If you cannot find any burned fuses, you should probly replace your brake switch underneat your dash. Your brake pedal will hit the switch, so you shouldn't have any problems finding it. It will be small and black
