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.

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.
