Couple of things....#1..the 3rd brake light is on a different wiring circuit then the lower brake lamps. #2...The 3rd lamp shares the same fuse as the trailer hitch wiring. So if you ever pull a trailer, it's easy to blow the fuse. #3...the dash was changed in 2002 the fuse is in the underhood fuse block....2003 it is in the left side dashboard fuse block. #4...If all else fails...rebuilt lamps are available.

did u check that they not burn?if not you should Check the wires going into the steering column if you don't have separate turn signal lights and brake lights because if they use the same bulb then the turn signal may be bad. If I remember correctly that particular car doesn't work this way, but I include it just in case.

SOURCE: 1996 Chev Silverado K3500 dually, no brake lights

The chevys with red brake lights and turn signals do two things and I've fixeds alot of them. Looking at the tail lights with the hazard flashers on. both sides flash with nothingeles on? Or are the hazards yellow? if they're red and the third eye does work the turn signal switch is possible problem but it doesn't let the blubs and the circuit boards in the taillights out as they can fail and do some really bad stories the wires for the brakes and the turns and the hazards are the same ones and if the turns look right and the hazards look right then the turn signal switch transmites the turn too as this doesn't work part of your story can't be true

SOURCE: tail lights on 2006 chevy silverado don't work

I had the same problem and found out that both light bulb sockets had corroded/burned contacts. After cleaning and applying dielectric grease, they worked perfect again.

SOURCE: third brake light doesn't work

I had the same problem. It turns out that the resistor was burnt, as this is a LED light strip and not a single bulb. If you are handy and want to save $$$$ you can get a replacement resistor through a parts store such as Radio Shack and solder it into the board. I did this and it works just fine

Check the brake light sockets and wiring for the brake light circuit.

Where is the #24 fuse located at for the third brake light

Year/make/model didn't post. The high mount brake light is not fused seperately. It should be on the same fuse as the brake lights. If it is not working check for a bad bulb. If the assembly is LED, check for power and ground at connector to light. If power and ground ok, suspect defective LED assembly

The 3rd/high brake light is not working .. replace light bulb with a new bulb. nothing happened. checked to see if fuse is good couldnt find it.. besides the fuse what could be the problem.. 2001 gmc...

Brake light switch. If I remember correctly, the third brake light works off a seperate circuit from the other brake lights so part of the switch could be bad.

Is the top brake light, the tail light or the backing up light?

Neither it only comes on when brakes applied. They often fail, and have a seperate fuse, check first. If fuse good and you have power and ground to light with brakes on, the third brake light assembly is no good.

My brake lights are not working,but the third light works.what could be the problem? The bulbs in the tail lights are good.

The brake lights and the top center brake light are on seperate fuses. One fuse may say "stop" and the other might say "brake" varies from model to model and some aren't identified at all other than by numbers. The locations and descriptios should be in the fuse section of the owners manual if you still have it otherwise you may just have to check all of them to see if any are blown.

you have a broken wire some were if you cant find it you can run a seperate power wire from the third brake light to the brake lights but i would check for power at the brake lights first to make sure its not a ground problem
