I had the same issue and had to replace my third brake light but after replacing it still wasn't working. Does anyone know if the third brake light has a separate fuse from the other brake lights? As of right now all of the other brake light works. Just trying identify what the issue is.

No fuse that I know of(you could check for codes in the footwell module though that controls all the lights), but maybe ask a tech at your local dealer. I would suspect a broken wire that runs at the base of the trunk hinge.

It needs to be reset through the ecu. I had this on my 3rd replacement I did. I brought it to the dealer and they said they had to reset it. After that, never had an issue again. Was running 2.5 yrs on the last replacement zero issues after the dealer did the reset for me.
