Earth point I think is under back seat
Also check the wiring that passes from car body to boot isn't broken under the rubber sheath as I think the brake light wiring is spliced before they get to the boot

Do you mean the high level light works OK? The power to all the brake lights comes along the same wire so you need to trace it back to where the wire splits for the high level light.
Yes the high light is fine , I was hoping there was just a plug and not some sort of splice/solder joint
