1997 540i Brake Light Issues

I could use some help. I'm getting a "Check Brake Light" Message and sure enough I have two of the four lamps out. These are the center lamps and when I replace the bulbs, they won't light. I have checked the bulbs- they light in the outside positions. Any suggestions?

My guess is that you need to replace your whole tail lights because they're probably wet and rusted.
