Where is the fuse for the third brake light on a 2005 Chevy Tahoe?

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.

If a 1991 Nissan brake light inside the car comes on but turns off after 20 plus minutes do you need new brakes or brake light sensor?

The brake light, a red light shaped like a headlight on the dash means that one or more exterior lights are not working. It could be a taillight, brake light, side marker, license plate light, or third brake light. It stays on all the time if it's a side marker or any light besides the brake light. If it's the brake or third brake light it will come on only when you press the brake pedal.
