Sorry about that thinking about another question. And also use a test light to make sure you are getting power to socket when brakes are applied. I also would check power going to brake light switch with test light.

It may be a problem with the turn signal switch. Power for the outboard brake lights passes through the turn signal switch. The high mount stop light (3rd brake light) does not. If the high mount stop light is working but the outboard lights aren't, suspect the turn signal switch. HTH. -Jim
