    How do you know it's coming in through the brake lights?
    The rear window seal is a much more common entry point for water.

    Have you pulled them and checked the lamp seals?

    Check the housing for that light (it's called a CHMSL for technical terms). There may be a busted seal in in it. Check the trunk seal in that area too. That may be an issue.

    Oh, The "Lizzie Dole Light". Well that one has a seal as well. Pull it and inspect or replace it.

    Make sure the bolts for the third brake light are tight. I had them come loose on my son's Deville, causing water in the trunk.
