It should be the small push button on the headlight switch assembly, If no small button is present then it would be part of the dash light dimmer usually it comes on and stays on if dimmer switch is in the full bright position.
Make sure both of the bulbs are good first. But the common problem with these body style lumina is the turn signal switch goes open and does not allow power for the lower break lights to work. The 3rd break light does not get power through the turn signal switch. You can by pass the switch and jump the two wires together and make sure they work before replacing the turn switch. There is a big bulk head connector at the bottom of the steering colume. There are lots of wires in there but you are looking for a white wire and an organ wire that are beside each other. I don't have a schmatic at home to give you the pin locations. But they will be on one of the outside connectors. There are 3 sets of wires coming together into this bulk head.
Hope some of that make since?
