Don't know much about cars, but have you tried changing the fuses? The one for the brake lights could be burned.

I mentioned that cause I had a different problem with my car and the fuses seemed alright, but it wasn't until I cahnged them to be on the safe side, and it actually worked. If not you might have a wiring problem but that can cost a lot of money just to get it checked. Re-wiring is hard work but it can be done.

all of the fuses look good a checked them all and none of them are blown or anything it could be worth a shot , i am still not for sure what it could be because if it was the fuses i figure that the middle brake light wouldnt work either but it does

Now they are working except when lights are on the brake lights are not as bright
