If your fuse 'seems' to be good, it sounds like you don't own any kind of meter.

Your can buy a serviceable digital multimeter that will be useful for many things around home and on your car for <$20 US.

If you have a Harbor Freight tool store in your area, they have usable meters for (on sale) $3.00.
Radio Shack runs higher but still under the mentioned limit.

Fuses can have minute cracks that may not be visible; you can be sure the fuse is blown if it failed catastrophically but otherwise, a meter will confirm that it is good or bad.
Also, the fuse contacts and the socket can fail due to corrosion so pulling and plugging a few times is advisable.

The presence or lack of voltage can be determined with a meter by removing the bulb and measuring between shell and the base contacts.
The bulbs can also be then verified.

I think you have probably lost a bulb but the entire loss of light could well be due to a chassis ground failure that may be dependent on a push-on or bolted/screwed point where one or more wires are attached to ground.

The meter I recommend would be very helpful in se3arching for your problem.

Brake lights don't work, one in back window works but ones on tail lights don't checked bulbs and fuses and they are okay


I would check the wiring to the 2 side lights, and make sure they are grounded or none has been cut or corroded. You have good power going to the rear if the 3rd brake lite is working fine so I would trace the wire from the 3rd brake light to where it splits and goes to the 2 rear brake lights...
