Start by inspecting the bulbs that don't light. Remove the bulb and make sure the contacts aren't corroded. If not corroded, change one bulb and test. If it doesn't work with the new bulb, then check the fuse(see owner's manual for which fuse is brake lights). If none of this works, check the activating switch located on the brake pedal arm.

= New

The brake light in the rear window and the main brake lights are on a different circuit. After the signal leaves the activating switch on the brake pedal arm, it splits. One circuit goes straight to the high mount brake light, the other goes into the turn signal switch. If the rear turn signals work but the brake lights don't, suspect the turn signal switch, not the bulbs and wires. Better to check this before removing and checking bulbs, wires and fuses.

It is a common problem with the W-body cars like Lumina, Monte Carlo, Buick Regal, Olds Cutlass and Pontiac Grand Prix. (Approx 94-99 models). Part number is GM 190005031 (w/o radio accessory control) or 19005032 (with radio controls)
