Rear light/brake light issues

Hello second time posting here you've been really helpful before so here goes....
Bike: 2014 husaberg te300
Issue: rear brake light stays on when lights are on

So yeah the rear brake light is staying on when I put my lights on, when I turn the lights off the brake light works fine. It's a stock led assembly.... Any ideas?
Thanks Briceyberg

Replace your light bulb and I bet you find the solution. Your getting a short or open inside your bulb. The open ground is most likely the culprit, but I think that the open ground is inside the bulb. If I remember correctly the tail light is in series to the daytime light and the brake is parallel? So if the open on the ground was at the harness, it would disrupt other items as the harness only has one ground location with everything wired to it. Very simple circuit on this machine.
Thanks from Rainerio

soo i think whats happening is the brake light feed wire is shorting to the frame and when the lights are on and earthing to the frame its then picking up a voltage through the frame causing the brake light to stay on.....time to get hunting for a broken wire :gun:
