Default 3rd Brake Light does not work.

no power going to the wires when pedal is pressed.

All other lights/brake lights work fine. We can rule out the switch on the brake pedal.

anyone have a wiring diagram? Is there a seperate fuse than the other lights back there?

OK - just wanted to make sure. Looks like all the brake lights get power from the same source. Some of the earier years had 2 contacts in the brake switch.

IIRC it'* probably on the driverside by the wheel well where the wires are routed through the grommet into the trunk.
