These cars are famous for this , i have repaired a few with the same problem, this problem is due to a bad brake light switch, this switch is located under the dash on the brake pedal bracket, if you follow the brake pedal arm up you will see the switch, the arm is what controls the on and off postion of this switch, this is easy to replace and not costly, the problem is that the switch need to be programed at the dealer. the problem is when you replace it the lights may not work , you may have to press the pedal down hard to turn brake lights on, when they program it they program when the lights turn on, i had never heard of such a thing until i replaced one and couldnt figure out why the lights didnt work unless i pushed the pedal down hard, good luck and hope this helps.

Check the ground connections. I've had good bulbs that didnt work because there was a bad ground leading to the bulbs socket.

Sounds like your brake light switch needs to be replaced.  It is attached to the brake pedal and should cost you around $20 from an auto parts store.  If the fuses and bulbs are good there is a 99% chance it is the brake light switch.  Hope this helps!  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

Right brake light out; tail light works fine


most rear tail lights and turn/stop lights are the same dual filiment bulb. it is possible for your tail light to work and your brake light not to and still have a bad bulb. I would check the bulb first, your brake light works on the left yes? this would mean that the fuse is fine
