Hello, my name is***** 3rd brake light and lower brake lights use the same fuse. They are all powered via brown wire. So either your bulbs are burned out or there is a wiring problem. Replace the bulbs and if that doesn't follow the brown wires to where they all meet together and look for problems. Let me know if you have more questions, thanks.
