Taillight Question??

Ok just asking what is the lighting setup.

1. With headlights off and i press on the brakes... the center and left inner right inner lights come on.

2. With headlights on and not pressing on the brakes... the left outer and right outer lights are on.

3. With headlights on and pressing on the brakes... the left inner and right inner come on and the center comes on. The right outer and left outer stay at the same brightness.

Is this setup correct? or when i press on the brakes are the outside lights supposed to come on too?

I had the brake light fail code and changed the switch but before that it was doing this setup too... and the brake light fail codes are no longer showing up.
