2005 Revolution Brake Light Issue

Have a 2005 Rev, Spartan chassis. About 4 years ago I replaced all tail light/indicator bulbs with LED, works well.

Recently, I have had an issue with one of my brake lights, drivers side, illuminating occasionally. Rig can be parked. Always the same drivers side brake light (top light on this revolution).

Any idears where to start troubleshooting? I can't imagine if there were an issue why one side would light up but not the other. Both light up when I press the brakes.

I donít know about yours but the sockets are crap. Try removing bulb sand contacts.

Likely the LED bulbs you are using are able to light regardless of which what power is applied and they are being lit by voltage coming from the ground side. (Something else has lost a good ground and is sourcing its ground through the LED to the unpowered, and grounded, feed side of the tail lights)
These are loads of fun to find but if you are lucky.....look for any ground points/wires that do not look solid and clean. (or detached)
If none found.... it's schematic time and probing through the circuits that interconnect.
I'll drag out my schematics (2004) and see if I can spot anything to check.

Good idea, will begin my investigation there. What confuses me is that the two lights dont light up simultaneously (left and right), perhaps as you said a current leak into ground on left is why.

I will start with towed connections (ready brute and the trailer connections)

Very interesting... both of my brake lights along with the 3rd brake light occasionally light up while parked with the engine & lights turned off. They are all new LED bulbs with new sockets, and they blink repeatedly. If they donít stop, I pull the fuse until itís time to roll.

Iíll search for the guilty ground wire(s) in an attempt to resolve this issue. Thx.
