Accoding to my schematic you should be seeing an orange/yellow wire going to the third brake light, and a branched off orange/yellow wire going to the turn signal switches which in turn goes to the BLU/WHT and BLU/BLK wires which control the rear stop lamps.
Then, there is a shorting bar connector that grounds out both rear tail lamps (not including the third brake lamp).
If the bulbs are good, then I'll bet the bar that grounds out both tail lamps has a bad ground, maybe.
Try to look for the common ground wire and trace it to the body, and see if there is a loose screw or nut that holds it to the negative body part.
Good luck on this repair.
