Default LED lights in third brake light

I was looking at my third brake light and noticed that my LEDs in there stay on very dimly. I am in a pitch black area so I know there ain't any other lights to reflect on it. Do LEDs stay on like that or do LEDs glow?

they r on, led's require very little power to stay on. u may have to put a resistor in to make it stop. mine r blue and u can't see them since i tinted my 3rd brake light but before i was worried about getting pulled over

I have a complete led swap inside and out. My cargo lights are also the only ones that stay lit....very very dim.

Same here... but the dim cargo lights will go out when your EVIC blanks out after 10 minutes. I'm sure the power drain is so small, you'll never have an issue.

Or, are you saying the cargo lights remain dimly light while the engine is running?? I'll have to check mine now that I typed that!

they remain dimly lit while the car's power is on, believe it's getting power from the third brake light but either way it is getting just enough power to stay dimly lit.
