Default Craziest thing..brake light

dimly glow all the time. I have tried disconnecting the power source (batteries) and they still glow. They are aftermarket led lights. Something somewhere has to be holding a small charge. Any ideas?

Negative side of battery pack via a 12 volt distribution panel. They continue to glow even with both + and - disconnected on battery pack.

If you disconnect both wires and jumper the two contacts together they should go out. However there is no need to do so. They should go out when unhooked after a period of time. They likely have a capacitor in them to regulate the output.

No, there is no extra battery. As someone said, there almost has to be a capacitor somewhere that the tail lights are feeding off of.

If they're LEDs they may just glow dimly. I have some LED bulbs in my Envoy dome lights that sometimes glow dimly, even with all power off, and I've been told it is normal. I have been told a resistor in line would cure it, but the glow doesn't bother me enough since it is very dim.
