Hello fella whats it on? Have you checked its not a brake in the wiring? Tested the push button attached to the pedal? Just noticed the picture 🤣 check the bulbs and holders for corrosion I've had that fault on two different vehicles in the past.

Nice one 👍, iam in the middle of removing all wire covers going threw bulk head past battery and down to abs unit looking for broken wires can’t find any so far 🥱
Yellow wire at brake switch is 12v
Orange wire is 12v
Grey is 3.5v
White is 12v

Have unplugged the rear lights check connections will check the bulbs and holders again 😭
all bulbs seem to be working working but maybe a fault there

Will update tomorrow
Thanks
