Default C1295 Brake Lamp Switch Circuit Open - Help

I've been getting this code on my 2000 for several months now. All the brake lights work fine and the schematic is pretty straight forward. Funny thing is I only get this fault as soon as I turn on any of the driving lights. I keep all lights off I never kick the fault. Anybody run into this before or got any advise? Thanks

Thought I'd post the fix incase someone else runs into the problem. With the LED taillights installed even with the electronic led module the EBTCM was sencing four bad brake lights. Once I loaded the LEDS properly one on each side the fault was cleared and has not returned.

LEDs were operating fine with the electronic flasher but the EBTCM was still picking them up as open brakelights.

Don't know what the Hyperflash is but with LED's you need an Electronic flasher --- ALSO If your car is an automatic with any brake light issue -it will un-lock your torque converter everytime there is a fault or you touch the brake pedal--

I'm new here, but I'm having the same problem with my 03 CTS. Can you elaborate just a little on how you fixed this. Thanks in advance

I have the same code tcs 1295. Brake lights wont turn on when pressing brake pedal.
New battery, new brake switch, checked input voltage to the switch and with a jumper wire without switch, still no brake lights. I have no LEDs.
