YES, wiring. Almost ALL vehicles that have a 3rd stoplight on the windows use the 3rd light as the main brake feed for the other 2 regular brake lights. so if your regular stop lights go bad but the 3rd one still works the most likely problem is going to be on the wire coming down from the 3rd light to feed the regular lights. use a test light or a vom/multimeter to determine if there's current coming thru the wires.check it at the outlet from the 3rd light and at the inlet of the other lighs.also check the sockets although i don't think that would be the problem
