Hello all,

I was driving home from work yesterday and I realized my LED tail lamps come on in the evening when I turn on my side markers but when I hit the breaks nothing?? Super confused on this one, haven't check anything out yet, but wanted to see peoples comments. I am going to check wires/fuses tonight.

Thanks in advance,

There's a fuse for the brake light.

Or... Have you taken the clam off lately? Friend had his off, and then the wires got pinched and the brake lights wouldn't work, but other tail lights did. That would be a green purple wire and a black.

+1 - by friend he means me :)

There is a separate system for the brake lights, it's in a wire loom on the left (driver's) side of the engine bay and comes through the clam where the main battery lines are. Mine had pinched between the clam and body and had rubbed through the sheath shorting the wires. Easy fix once I took the rear fender liner off.
