My 2014 Forester had a problem with the 3rd brake light being dim.
After googling the issue found a solution.
Turns out the problem was in the PCB it has 3 resistors & 1 diode.
The diode # IN4005 was the problem, bought replacements for under $2 delivered.
Unsoldered & resoldered in new diode in under 10 mins, works like a charm now for less than $2.
A replacement Light from Subaru was + $370, or wreckers sell them for +50.
Either way I am no expert but it pays to do a bit of research.
