Raxiom License Plate LED Staying On

I just installed this Raxiom LED light and when I turn off the lights, one LED panel stays lit.........has anyone seen this before? I'm not overly concerned, because I'm sure my Python alarm uses more juice than this little LED.

Yes a couple of LED's on my third brake light stay on for like 15 minutes after my car is turned off. I never added a resistor and it's fine. You shouldn't have any problems

I have the same thing with my brake light as well !! Been like that for over a year and no problem . In the body of the car there is a very small charge that's what causes it with being led lights use very little power thay can light up just a bit. To stop it you just put in a resistor and it will stop.

You should still be fine but if you start having issues with battery or it just bothers u then throw on a resistor.

Hey Guys,

Sorry to hear about the trouble here. That's defintiely on the interesting side as it's the first I've heard about them acting up like this. If you'd like to have them replaced I'm more than happy to facilitate a warranty claim through Raxiom for you and get you replacements fast tracked. Don't hesitate to shoot me a PM and I'm here to help out!

Alex

I have left mine without a resistor for around 2 years with no problems so I never added one. But if u want to, u can Google it but it's a piece that u splice into the wiring before bulb connection. It can mount to back side of trunk lid but u may want to add some rubber or something because I do hear they can get got and cause outside of trunk to get hot and cause possible paint damage. I find that part to be a little exaggerated but anyways. The resistor drains the leftover current from the LEDS allowing them to go out.
