SOURCE: LED Brake Lights diming
I had the same problem with my 2004 TL, and it was the brake light switch. It is very easy to replace. (10 min) I ordered one from Rockauto.com for only $6.95. To replace: Remove the black cover under the steering wheel, down by the fuses (held in place by rubber pins and clips - no screws) Locate the switch on the arm of the brake pedal. Unplug the switch, twist the old switch out and install the new one - it's simple!

the problem is probably your turn signal switch. I know it sounds weird, but the brake lights work through the switch. If the third brake light works, then the brake light switch works, the turn signal switch works the lower brake lights. It's the switch under the steering wheel inside the column...not the easiest or cheapest thing to replace, but should fix your problem. If you decide to do it yourself, tie some wire to the connecter on the end of the switch wires at the bottom of the column...that way when you pull the wires up throught the column, you can use the wire you tied to them to pull the new connector and wires back down through the column.

Check for power out of brake light switch by brake pedal. Of its faulty , the 3rd brake light will still work. Hope this helps

The third break lights are LED and the circuit board may have gone bad or the solder may have gone bad. The circuit board is built in the third brake light and is a seal unit. You may have to replace the unit, there is a relay for the third brake light and that is located on the glove box behind the panel that say's relays. There are three relays in there, the center is for the fuel pump and the two out side are for the A/C and third brake light. Just swap them around and see if the brake lights come on. Good luck and keep me posted.
