Welcome to JustAnswer.

Have you tried replacing the bulbs? The power for the 2 outer and center bulbs comes from the same wire. One wire runs to the rear from the brake light switch. Please let me know about the bulbs. It's common for one to burn out then the other shortly after.

Thanks, Honda-Man

There is a splice in the white/black wire where it splits to each of the 3 bulbs. If the bulbs are OK the problem is at the splice.
