Third Party Rear Light Cluster

Hi All,

I have purchased some third party rear light clusters,they are a smoked black with LED bulbs. I fitted but removed them because the dashboard warning light was indicating that the rear bulbs had gone. While they were fitted, I got my lad to turn on the lights while i stood behind the car. On the second stage ignition i noticied that the bulbs seemed to flicker individualy before the lights were even turned on, i assumed this was the cars system checking they were okay. They appeared to work okay, having said that, when the brakes were touched, the rear fog light would also illuminate. They look really nice but as i said, i have removed them until i get some educated info as to whether they will cause a problem or if there is a work around that won't compromise the electrics of the car. Really would appreciate anyones experiance with this kind of problem, cheers guys.
