Default Brake Lights not working. Seeking help

Hey guys,

Car ; 2007 350z LED Taillights (brembo conversion )
i just came to a dead end and canít decide whatís wrong with the issue.

All my lights work. Rear tail lights and headlights. Normally.
I recently came across where when I hit the brakes I donít see my stop lamps light up. I went as far as

swapping tail lights with someone (nothing)
using my tail lights on my friends car (works fine)
Using his brake switch (worked on his car not mine)
using my brake switch on his car (worked on his car not mine)
checking for shorts in the tail lights and checking grounds.
All fuses are good on all 3.
Replace FULL fuse box behind engine

My question is. Is there a relay or something or what else can I do? Most people have the switch problem but mine seems to be deeper. The only thing I know is that my rotors are warped but that wouldnít cause my car to not illiminate the stopping lamps as they use too.

Did you check for wiring continuity at all connecting points?

i know nothing about electrical wiring. I do have a voltmeter from Walmart. A cheap 12 dollar one. Now to check this. I can just stick the voltmeter into the open connector after taking out the headlight connector right? And if there I power and all fuses are fine. What would be next?

Check the harness at the tail lights on the body side to see if there is power. I would test all pins to be sure each is live.

update- the wire was disconnected from the connector, wasnt really but in the connector it was loose. Use a volt meter and traced it down!
