So Sergio, if you were going to test bulbs before installing to see if they had an internal diode you would....?

Apply 12v to the bright brake circuit and measure the voltage on the positive wire going to the dimmer marker light.

If you get 5v or anything other than zero, the circuits are not isolated inside the bulb.

This may sound silly but a LED is a diode.

If your LED bulbs don't have and internal diode, You can add one externally.

The diode needs to be in series with the positive power to the "marker" lights, with the "striped" end of the diode towards the LED bulb.

You need a diode to isolate each bulb with the issue.
BOOM. Well done and well explained to both of you.
