Default LED Brake light, surprising problem

Just fitted a beehive rear light, just for looks really as ive got combined LED brake/side/indicators, it came with a normal bulb, so changed it for an LED replacement to keep current down and longevity,







when i fitted it, the brake and side lights came on together, thinking i had done something wrong in the wiring, i pulled it all apart to check, all seemed ok, put it back in, same problem, i put the original ( incandesent) bulb and all was ok.

Found out that the LED side/stop although it has two pins, all the leds light up together and only get brighter when fed the brake power, the 12v from the side feed was being fed back the the other terminal just enough to power the other LED brake lights.
seems this brake LED bulb is CanBuss compliant, as it works fine in my car.
oh well lesson learnt, i put the old bulb in for now lol
