WK Brake light ghost...
 
It was brought to my attention when I was leading a few JG members out to the off road trail by Craig that sometimes when I would brake only one of my tail lights would brighten for the brake light. When we were parked he pressed my brake while I stood behind to witness for myself. Out of about 5 times he pressed on the brake the 3rd brake light lit everytime. But maybe 2 times the tail lights didn't light for the brake light.

On my way home from work Friday I was behind another WK and as wh slowed down to a red light he was coasting and pumping his brakes and I noticed the same thing. Out of maybe 3 timed he braked I noticed once that only the 3rd brake light came on. Has anyone else noticed this also??? Has anyone ever heard of this happening??? I'm concerned cause I was clipped from the back once and I have tinted tails.

Interesting! I have not noticed this, but I don't really have communication with the people behind me either! lol

Shits. Me either.

All I know is that our third brake light is LEDS, correct?

I'm going to try that but it seems like an electrical problem cause the normal tail light is on it's just the brake light part doesn't light in the tail light at times.

The third light is LED you haven't given your halogen bulbs enough time to light up b/c LEDs light up instantly and halogens heat up. If you have tow package sometimes one of the halogen bulbs will light up before another that is because of the circuit in the tow package/lighting.

I thought that ryan but this was pressing on the brake enough to see the jeep slow down and the brake light in the tails didn't come on.
