If full nodes did not exist there would be nothing to enforce miner rules which means they could do as they please. You don’t seem to understand how Bitcoin works so we will give you the short version:

1. Miners produce blocks and maintain the blockchain via consensus rules.
2. Full nodes keep the miners “in check” so they do not break consensus rules.

If full nodes did not exist or were not plentiful the network would not be secure whatsoever...
