My right brake light and center brake light do not work, I swapped the 3 bulb harness,

Check the bulb socket for both power and ground. Which one is missing? This will let you know which side of the circuit you lost.

Both are there! I used a meter to check both continuity and DC voltage. I get the same readings on the right side as on the left but still no brake light right side.

Ok with brake pedal pressed you have both power and ground on that side? If you have both power and ground then it's in one of the connections. Bulb grease the connections real good.
