Without my lights turned on during the day, when i brake, my left brake light does not work. But at night when i run my lights, the left brake light works fine and the right brake light, as well the tail do not work when i brake. Does this have something to do with the brake light switch? I have checked all the bulbs and fuses and they are okay.

Hi, No model of vehicle or year both would help!
sounds like you need to ensure the back light is never left on before leaving the vehicle. you need to check the tension on the brake light switch or replace the brake light switch normally under the car without full details hard to state where brake switch is located. Please leave me feedback, Malcolm Campbell.
Try removing the the bulbs from the left tail light and cleaning sockets and bulb bases (or replace them).
It sounds like a contact problem which may be exacerbated by having the tail light on when the brake light attempts to light.
There are probably also quick disconnects plugged onto the light fixtures that might be corroded but those are not as easy to clean.
Have you verified both high beams are in working order? DRL's are very funny about not working if one of the lights is burned out. Rememeber that DRL's are only high beams using 20% of the power so just because your normal lights work, it does not mean the high beams are working correctly.
When you say you replace the fuse 3 times, is because the fuse have blown? If so, there is a short in the system and will need expert help to trace the short.
Does the day time running light stay on during day light hours and does the lights comes on without activating the headlight switch during night hours when the park brake is released?
If so, this of course is normal condition. If not then the day time running light circuit needs diagnosing along with the body module circuit. Headlight switch will also need to be tested.
