When I depress the brake pedal, are the taillights in the middle suppose to light up?I just purchased two new middle assemblies and they don't light up. The end taillights do light up though.

It sounds like there is a fault in the wiring. I would check the wiring coming from the harness to see if it's grounding out.

Thanks Chris, How do I check to see if it's grounding out? Do I need a low voltage tester? Where is the harness located?

I haven't checked a 93' but I don't think the center is used for a brake light. If both centers are out, I doubt they are part of the brake system. I would think if they were part of the brake lights, one side would probably still work.
