What is the name of the small rubber piece that is located under the brake pedal that turns off the tail lights?

The part of the car that turns on the brake lights when you apply pressure to the brake pedal is called the brake switch. Releasing pressure from the pedal causes the brake switch to break its electrical contact, turning off the lights.

How many amps do tail lights draw?

That would depend on the total watt rating of all the bulbs in the tail lights.

What would be the problem if the back hatch brake light works on top but the two corner brake lights don't . it's not the fuse or bulb?

Sounds like bulbs need to be replaced--they most likely are double filamented-larger filament for tail lights and smaller for brake lights be a broken wire or a bad ground Depends on the car....most use 2 different circuits the top light going straight to the brake pedale switch and the tailights going through a control module THEN to the tailights. Check EVERY fuse you have in the car

If the headlights are on and brake lights work but not the tail lights, it is possible there is a short in the electrical wires.
