If the brake light bulb is good, then check the wiring to the brake light that is out and look for any broken wires or loose grounds. A broken wire or loose wire will cause a circuit to fail as the circuit is either open or has too much resistance. If you need further assistance with your brake lights, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
