Question about 1995 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
Sounds like either both bulbs need replaced or a wiring problem. Check bulbs first if they are fine use a test light to see if there is current to the bulb if no current trace back to see where current stops and repair. Also if you have current check your groundsfor the brake lights.

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

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.
