Your inner brake lights arent working.

If you want to have the inner brake lights also turn on like the outers, you need to connect that long wire from the outer lights to the inners.
Ahh got it thanks. Will do that some other time lol

Would help to explain number of wires, more descriptive information.
Assuming it's the two small wires? Those connect the trunk lights on some models. Does the video not show them?
First video at 1:18. The small wire. I have a 2018 model and oem did not have those. I saw another youtube video where the guy didnt connect those two small wires. Do we know what its for?
That is to light up the brake light on the inners

The 2 pin yellow and red wire is from the aftermarket outer tail lights. Its not original to the car.

They connect to the inner aftermarket tail lights so the brake lights turn on in the inner lights. You have to route them through the hole between the two mounting studs of the outer tail light.

Yes like everyone else said your inner brake lights are not working.

Went with BayOptiks V2's. Due to it having warranty should I have any issues. Fitment is excellent. Slight trim of the plastic rivets, so I can feed the 2pin wire harness to the trunk center brake lights. Install about 30-45mins. Looks very OEM. So far I dig it!
