does the DIC show that it is out?

if you want to dig deep into it, take out the back seat, back dash, and pull out the 3rd brake light... tint the back window while ur at it

are you sure sure u had a good bulb?

Did you check for power at the socket?

Problem:
Bulb no worky.

1. Replace bulb (they're cheap).
2. Check for power at the socket, if it'* there, check for ground (brake depressed for this step)
3. Check fuses. ALL of them, 3 locations in the car.
4. Check wiring.
