I have the same problem but the bulbs are fine. The fuses are fine. I checked the brake light switch took it apart cleaned the contacts. The third brake light still works but the rears don't. I pulled the inside of the vehicle apart in an attempt to trace the wires to the light to see if it was worn or borken. No luck. Turn signals or hazards won't work either. Changed the flasher... I don't know what else to do.

Check your fuse for the brakes, if fuse is blown replace. If not fuse go buy a package of brake light bulbs at the auto store. Then replace the bulbs.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: parking lights work third brake light works,just not back brakes?

The bulbs do not need to be replaced! The answer to this problem is believe it or not in the turn signal lever, or multi-function switch. It is extremely common on these cars, and usually mis-diagnosed. Try this before going any farther. Back the vehicle up to a wall, or have a person stand behind the car, and pull the turn signal lever slightly towards you as if you were switching between hi and low beams. I guarantee that when you put just a little pressure on the lever your brake lights will work. If you want the problem fixed, you need to have the switch (and lever arm) replaced from inside the steering column, and you need someone to remove the airbag to do this. The switch is roughly $200 from an aftermarket parts store. If you learn to drive your car and just know that when you brake you can pull back on the lever to make the lights work great, I did for a few years in mine. But I guarantee that is the answer to your problem

SOURCE: Third brake light on constantly, other brake lights seem not to work at all

It sounds like you need a brake light switch. It is mounted under the dash on the pedal assembly. It is easy to change, just twists in place. Good Luck

SOURCE: 2002 yukon no brake lights but third brake light works

ed7882 I had the same exact problem and thought it was a fuse or the wiring. Come to find out it was just a blown bulb. They are inline together with the cruise so if one blows it all goes. So change out the lights and that should fix it for you.

SOURCE: 99 JEEP BRAKE LIGHT WONT WORK..THIRD BRAKE LIGHT WORKS

on chrysler products the third brake light is run independant of the body control module, try checking the fuses that run the brake lights and see if any are faulty if not check you have voltage at the switch and a signal getting to the lights.
