Hello,

It sounds like you have a bulb that is melted in its socket. I would start by removing all bulbs and inspecting them and there socket contacts.

Here are two guides and the brake light wiring diagrams so you can see how the system works:

and

Check out the diagrams (below). Please run some tests and get back to us.

Cheers, Ken
