I am assuming you replaced the blown bulb? And by taillights I am assuming you mean brakelights. You have turn/brakelights and then you also have taillights/marker lights.

By chance are you running LED light bulbs?

Sounds like you have a bad spot in your wiring harness. has the wiring been modified for any reason?

Is the vehicle new to you? Sounds like the wiring was modified for previous owner if the truck is new to you. Maybe a remote start or ???? who knows.

The wire for the third brakelight comes directly from the brake pedal switch. It's lightgreen(at least it was on the earlier trucks). I don't know if Autozone has diagrams for your year truck or not.
