    Lightbulb Left brake stop lamp always slightly on?

    Left brake stop lamp is always on just a little bit - park/headlights off, brake pedal not pressed - that lamp is slightly lit, just slightly. Generally can only tell it's on at dusk/dawn. Figured this might be a side effect of a possible factory hack to get the third brake light to work, but been wondering. Couldn't find anything on search.

    There's no hack, all three stop lights are fed from a separate feed from the BeCM, left from pin 17 on C1291, right (and feed to the trailer socket) from pin 12 on C1584 and the high level stop lamp from pin 13 on C1584. Possibly someone has been in there and added extra wiring (trailer socket not wired to the provided feeds?) or fault in the BeCM power board.
