Well it sounds like you've narrowed it down pretty well. How are you checking your brake lights? Are you just having someone press the brake pedal while stationary?

Again, check your standard brake lights to see if one of the two bulbs is out. One bulb still provides a good amount of light so it can be difficult to spot. Also, take the car out with someone driving behind you, get up to speed and then let the brakes have it. The person driving behind you should see the additional brake lights come on under hard braking.

Once you've found the bulb then you can determine whether you need to replace a single bulb or if a connection point is bad and you need to replace the housing.

As I said, neither solution is very expensive. It's just a matter of hunting down that one bad light.
