If the third brake light, the one you stated was in the back windshield, is on the brake light swithch should be ok. Check the other two brakes light sockets for power when you apply the brake. Unless you are really fast you'll need a second person. If ther is power replace the bulbs. If there is no power trace the wiring to find the open in the circuit. A factory wiring diagram will be helpful.
