Default Brake lights not coming on when pedal pressed.

My tail lights will come on when I turn the headlights on, but when I press the pedal, nothing happens. When I turn the headlights off, the tail lights go off and still, nothing happens.
The fuses are all good.

The lights do not turn off when I press the pedal. They do not dim or light up brighter and it is not the bulbs, because I checked them lol.

please help!

that switch has 12 volts to the bulbs

did you do the adjustment at the pedal so the switch fully releases when pedal depressed

brake light bulb has two elements inside
fit a new one to be sure
