If you are getting power to the 3rd light, there has to be a wiring issue between the switch and the lights; otherwise, the 3rd light wouldn't work. What I need you to do is pull the tail light assembly out and check wiring to the sockets. Start from there and trace the wiring form there toward the front of the vehicle. There is a plug that attaches the wiring harness. Disconnect it and make sure nothing is corroded or damaged.

Let me know what you find.

Check the brake light relay in the Rear Electronic Module. The module is located in the trunk on the left side. Fold down the panel to access. I will attach a wiring diagram. Let me know what you find. If there seems to be an issue with the module, before you replace it let me know. You may not need to replace it. But I would start with the relay and also checking the shunt as you will see in the diagram.
