High or third mount Brake lamp

I live in a state that requires an inspection sticker every year my 2013 camaro ss failed today because the third brake light does not come on unless the headlights are on. Is there a switch or something that might be messed up?
maybe it comes on brighter during the day and not as bright during the night?

Thanks for any help

Sounds like a bad ground... The 3rd light should be a completely separate circuit from the taillights, but it looks like it is grounding through the taillights.

Do you have a flashing third brake light? if so, someone may have grounded the flasher module to the taillights instead of wiring it in properly.
