Default Brake light issue

my '03 has brake light issues---taillights work fine--replaced brake light switch twice--1st time the lights worked for about a week then quit--new switch didn't help--fuse is good---is there a relay that I may be missing? Wiring by brake pedal looks fine. Any ideas? Thanks!!

Joe--Please excuse my ignorance--what is the retaining ear? Is it on the switch itself? Thank you for your help!!

its the little plastic fingers that sticks out 180 degree apart that goes through the brake bracket to hold it on an in position.
