From your very brief description I would purchase two replacement bulbs for the lights that aren't working, although you may have looked at them and they seem o.k. the filiaments on the brake light side are heavier than sidelight ones so if fused sometimes you can't see the break in them.
As your third brakelight is fully functional this is the reason I would be looking for replacement.
I hope this helps? please remember to appraise my FREE effort and press that Blue button if sorted, Thank You!

How to reset brake warning light on a 83 gmc

if its a low brake fluid situation that is turning on the light then make sure the fluid level is correct. if its full then the proportioning valve may have to be centred if it move too far in one direction. to do this you bleed the brakes to move the valve to the centre position. if this won`t work then tap the valve while bleeding it should unstick the valve. check the e-brake as it could have moved just enough to turn on the brake light indicating the e-brake is on, as there is a switch for this on the e-brake pedal, make sure its in the full off position(pedal is up all the way).

Message centre posted "check stop lamp" what does

Sounds like you have a blown brake light globe. Often the brake light circuit electrical resistance is monitored and will have detected a blown globe (bulb) Have someone put their foot on the brake pedal and make sure all the brake lights are working. If not replace the faulty globe or repair the fault. Blown brake light globes on a few modern vehicles can cause many engine running faults which seem unrelated to the brake lights.

Having problems with brake lights. The hazard light and blinkers are working when applied. When I apply brake the centre light on hatch door works but the two side lights don't work

Well the fact the high mount/3rd brake light works proves brake light switch is working. I would suspect factory trailer connector wire which feeds off tailight is broken. Follow wire from plug back to left taillight where it is exposed to the elements.

Third brake light works, but brake lights L/R don't.

faulty turn signal switch would effect brake lights if its faulty.because brake lights and turn signal feeding off same circuit.

Brake lights not working but centre mount is!!

the problem is most likely in the turn signal switch. the power for the left and right brake lights goes through the turn signal switch, but power for the center mount comes straight from the brake light switch. this allows the brake light to be turned of so the turn signal can operate as they use the same filimant in the bulb.

1999 Lincoln towncar limo, outside lights

could be lighting control module $$$$$$$ @400
it's above brake pedal area under dash. 6 x 4" approx.
Do high beams work? Flash to pass work?

if it's the lighting control module, it will provide a fault code when dealer tests it with NGS testor.

Unknown light on dash

It sounds like a brake pad warning light. Sometimes can be linked in with the brake fluid light.
Check the brake fluid level first. If its ok then check the front brake pads. If the pads are worn down the fluid level will have dropped. Also if the fluid level is low the sensor will bring on the light.

Brake lights

There are two brake light switches at the brake pedal.
One for the center brake, and one for CC and outside brake lights.
More than likely its a fuse, or the switch.
