My father has a set of Smoked LED taillights for his 2007 300C, and during the day (lights off), his passenger brake light does not work...
But if you turn his lights on, the same LEDs for the brake light work... Just won`t brighten during Braking
Is this a known issue ? I could not find a thread answering this.... If the lights did not entirely work, I would not be so stumped.
Does he need new taillights ? Sometimes his low-beams (HIDs) will not work, but after you shut them off, and turn them back on they will work... Don`t know if this has anything to do with it..
any help is appreciated, he wants me to take a look tomorrow before he gets pulled over..

If both brake lights won't work, I'd say check the brake light fuse. My 07 Magnum is fuse 15 in the rear box, yours may be the same. Since it's just one side that doesn't work, check the wiring. If they are connected properly and the wiring is not damaged, it's prolly a faulty brake light. If that's the case, you may need to replace em. I have the same tail lights and I don't think there's any way to service the bulbs. Once they're out, they're out. HID problems are beyond common, buy only cuz HIDs are a total PITA. I don't think the two problems are related.
Easy enough to double check even if you don't have a meter or any electrical skills; got the stock taillight to swap in and see if it behaves correctly?
