I would like to work with you to figure this out. But may we begin with clarifying ... do you have auto-dusk sensing (automatic ) headlights? And also let's get this right for me, to avoid confusion. No headlights, all is well. Headlights on, brake lights come on. Along with tail lights. click for full screen

No auto lights. standard off/pkg lts/head lights. Yes, no lights selected brake lights (all three) work as you would expect. turn lights to head lights tail lights illuminate with brake bulbs also illuminated. Center brake light in rear window as illuminates.
