You don't, it's a safety item so there is no switch, you have to manually disconnect it, and on some vehicles this will turn on the lamp out warning unit.

The third brake light has been required by law since January 1, 1986 in all 50 States. If you disconnect it or it's otherwise not working you can get a ticket for failure to maintain lights. HTH. -Jim

I have also learned that if the bulbs are burned out on the third brake light, the cruse control will not work....
