I've seen rear lights that I'd bet money were "on" but it was the sun.

I'd do what was suggested before: remove the lens, and there would be no question about whether the bulb is lit.

Please let us know however you find whatever the outcome is.

I wouldn't go to the trouble to remove the lens. I would simply throw a quilt or something over it and look at it then.

I'll bet the brake light switch is set too sensitive. There should be an adjustment to back off a small amount. Expansion due to heat maybe turning them on.

good thinking!

When the ghost lights are one.........have someone lift the brake pedal. That will at least isolate one possible solution..............ronspradley
