I'm leaning towards the alternator connector. But being that you say the third brake light is out I'd check that and the wiring. Pull back the rubber wire cover for the wires going into the hatch. Right where they come out of the body and into the hatch door. The insulation on the wires get pulled back or broken from the constant flexing. When the wires start touching each other they can cause all sorts of weird problems that you wouldn't even think could be related to that.
I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left
