The brake switch closes when the plunger comes all the out of the housing. The switch body is threaded making it adjustable. It’s possible that it is out of adjustment or doesn’t have power. Check things first before you start replacing items. I’d first measure both the orange and the white wires on the switch. Measure each one to a good ground. The orange will always have power while the white gets power when the pedal is pushed down. These are common switches and should be available from the auto parts store.
