Try voltmeter on the contacts , it sounds like you have a good earth with the tail lights going but check again . and fuse

Connect the two wires from switch together, to test switch.
You say it seems to be OK!

How did you test it.A $10 test light will tell you everything you need to know. It can be hard to test the power at the bulbs when you have your foot on the brake You sometimes need to either bridge out the switch or get a second person. Also make sure the pedal actually operates the switch.Things can get bent.

also try with the brake pedal depressed to grab the switch plunger with your fingers and turn it a few times ,could be bad contact, plus check the multi plug down in the drivers kickpanel, all the wiring to the back goes thru it

If you have a plug wired up for a trailer check the wires going from the various lights to the plug, loose connections ,water etc
