Check the wiring where it leaves the main body of the car and goes into the hatchback. These wires tend to wear and break after years of opening and closing the hatch. Remove the rubber boot to expose the wires so you can inspect them. HTH. -Jim

The third brake light runs off of its own switch. See this thread at the Corvette Action Center for more information: http://www.corvetteactioncenter.com/forums/c4-general-discussion/85217-courtesy-lights-3rd-brake-light.html#post725139
