96 olds cutless supreme brake lights

when i step on the brakes only the center brake light works. the bulbs and fuse are ok., brakelight switch has been replaced, turn signal is fine. looks like a wiring problem to me. anybody know where to start?

have you used a test light to check the sockets for the bulbs or a new bulb the bulb might look good but maybe broken down inside behind the metal base also check the groud wire in the trunk will be screwed to the body close to the wiring harness connector for the rear lights usually on the drivers side
if the car has a trailer light connector check here for cut/rotten wire's
