Check the fuses in the fuse panel,if the signal lights are working at the back then the bulbs are good(have seen all tail lights burnt)then you will have to check the brake light switch at the base of the brake pedal.its a 2 wire wire should have voltage all the time and the other only when the brake is depressed.if the power is not going through the switch then the switch needs replacing.also check for broken wires at the switch also.this should fix the problem.if the third light is not working chances are the bulb needs replacing.

Brake lights stay on

mostlikely the brake switch is quite simple, it is located on top of the brake padel under the dashboard. Try to push the switch in and out a few times..........if it still does not work, replace it with the same model. Enjoy it

Brake pedal goes too far down. Brakes still stop car fine. Too much pedal travel. 2005 model year.

You have to check your master cylinder, pump your brake several times and hold it, see if is going down to the bottom, if does, the master cylinder is wrong, check the brake pressure hose, maybe you have some air in your brake lines, be sure you have enough brake fluid
