I would look for a wiring short in the trunk at the taillamp area, or, inspect the sockets for the taillamp bulbs for corrosion. In any case, you have a short circuit in the trunk area, also check the wire that comes from the body & goes up the trunk hinge on the driver side; that wire may be chafed, and it may be shorting out. Hope this helps; please get back to me if you need any further assistance.

This may sound too simple, but first verify that you are getting voltage to the light socket. Use meter on d.c. If you are getting voltage, and your bulb is good, it could be a bad ground. Don't overlook the brake light system goes through the directional signal in the steering column.

SOURCE: Brake Lights Not Working ...
Hello all; I figured out this one; it is indeed the turn signal switch. There are plastic tabs that hold the whole assembly together under constant friction when you use the turn signal. They eventually wear out. I was able to fix mine on my own. I had to take the air bag out and everything! The easy way to figure this out is to take out one of the brake lights from it's mount, lay it in the trunk connected and fold the seat down, so you can look back and see it go on as you pull the turn signal lever slightly towards so and step on the brake. That's how you know it's your turn signal control. you can either replace the control or fix it with washers and lithium grease like I did. It wasn't really hard. I used the Haynes manual and bought a stearing wheel puller. Still cheaper than the dealer or repair shop. I paid $60 overall.
