Are the lights not working only on one side of vehcle?
For the brake lights, did you check the brake Fuse # 20 ( 10 A ) in underdash fuse block?
Does the hazard lights works?

I am having the same problem on the right side.
The light does work when I first start the car, or hit the key fob, but doesn't work when I break or turn signal is applied. Only the back right.
I will check the fuse and hazards tonight.
Batherton, did you fix yours?

EP24, also check the main ground for the right rear lights. Unfortunately, our online reference isn't letting me see schematics, so I can't tell you exactly where it is, but it'll be behind that side of the seat, near the 'B' pillar base.

Update, hazard flashers do work.
Any other ideas?

Ok, just to verify here EP24: The right rear brake/turn signal doesn't work when the brake pedal is depressed, or the turn signal switch is activated, after the car has been running for some time frame.
However it does work with the hazards or when locking/unlocking with the remote fob.
Is all this correct?

Yes you are correct.
Also checked all the fuses under driver dash and didn't find any blow.

Ok. When the problem occurs, check for power at the brake pedal switch, on both sides, with the pedal up and with it depressed.

After further investigation, the blinker/brake lights seem to work for 1 flash only, and then after it goes dead. If I shut the car off and then back on the brake/flash/hazards will only work for the 1st flash and then stops working. This only happens on the back right hand side.

You need to trace the wires and figure out where the power to the bulbs stops.

But the fact that the lights work for even the first few seconds means they are getting power, right?
