Just bought a set of LED taillights for my 99 silverado. Well now the third brake light is on whenever the lights are on. Its not as bright as when i step on the brakes but you can see its on. Everything else works great. Thats the only issue I'm having. Anyone ever have this happen and what did you do to fix it or do you just live with it?

check to make sure your connection is good. LEDs can only be hooked up 1 certain way.

Went out this morning and messed with it for almost an hour. Swapped around connections, even disconnected em and it was still there. I'm gonna have to break out my multimeter I guess. I'm stumped at this point. Anyone have any ideas?

Ended up just giving in and undoing the third brake light till I can figure out a fix.

youd need a load resistor in the brake light circuit mine did the same thing untill i put a resistor on the circuit at one of my tailights. cruise control also didnt work without the resistor
