    When I apply the brakes, my third brake light works, but my rear ones do not. My turn signals,and running lights are working fine. I have changed the bulbs, but no luck. Any Ideas?

    Pull the taillight assembly out, and check inside of the brake light sockets. If there is any sign of black scorching they are shot, this is common on the 94-99 body style, i got a brand new one (entire circuit board) at a junkyard for 25 or 35 bucks each, I know they well them on ebay but that is at your own risk.
