First you buy a good-quality 3rd brake light kit appropriate for the mounting angle on your particular car -- see the links below for examples. If your car's left and right brake lights are separate from the left and right rear turn signals (different bulbs for the brake lights and turn signals), then you just follow the instructions with the kit. If your car has combination brake/turn lights (the same red light burns steadily for brake light or flashes for turn signal) then you must run a new wire from the brake light switch to the rear of the car to feed the new 3rd brake light -- cars with combination brake/turn lights route power from the brake light switch through the turn signal switch and then from there to the back of the car; if you try to get away without running the new wire, the 3rd brake light won't work properly and you'll backfeed other lighting circuits with random results.

Fuse for the "Third" Brake LightAlthough I have no experience with the Chevy Tahoe, the systems are similar for almost all vehicles.The third brake light is tied into the wiring for the other brake lights and is protected by the SAME fuse they are.Thus, there is no separate fuse for the third brake light.Therefore, IF your other brake lights are working, then a failure of the third brake light to activate IS NOT caused by a fuse, but instead an "open circuit" condition in the "dedicated" third brakelight wiring [from where its wire "splits" off of the wiring harness to the other brake lights].This is usually caused by a connector which has become disconnected, or a cut or broken wire.
