I can help you I had that problem on my 1988 cutlass ciera and the answer is that one of the lights on the back not the third small on is not working. Open the trunk take out the bulb itself and check the wiring. That what was wrong with mine someone didn't have it wired right. Hope this helps you out.

What do you do about 1989 cutlass supreme your brake lights stay on all the time?

Check the brake light switch. It's under the dash, connected to the brake pedal. If it's adjusted wrong or faulty, it could cause the brake lights to stay on. If you can use a meter and tell that the brake light switch is ok, next test the turn signal switch. Sometimes they short out and leave the brake lights on. You'll have to pull the steering wheel to do that.

The most likely cause is a bad brake light switch (if none of the brake lights illuminate) but if its only one of the brake lights, try changing the bulb. Even if they still work as running or turn lights because they have a double filament and may still work partially, but not as brake lights.

You probably need to replace your brake light switch. It's near the top of the brake assembly, beyond a trim panel. The fact that all three brake lights don't work rules out problems in the multifunction switch (the cause of similar problems affecting only the two rear lights.)
