Default 3rd brake light. All ways on but dimmed except when braking. Normal?
My 3rd brake light is on in the evenings when my headlights and others are on. It doesnít matter whether Iím parked or in gear, stationary or driving the red leds are on.
Dimmed though, because when I brake they brighten up.

Friend of my was driving behind me and initially thought I was driving with my foot on the brake. (Donít you hate those folks that do!!??)

Tried all kinds of settings with the lighting knob. Auto or not it doesnít matter.

All my Forscan settings are default. Even reset them to default, just to be sure.

Is this normal for the Raptor? (2018). I just donít recall ever seeing that with others?

Thanks! Rob.

The three at the top rear of the cab are always on with the lights- just like the other two of the five that are required on vehicles wider than 80". Those three act as the CHMSL as well, and brighten when you hit the brakes. The two under the tail lights do not.
