Got it. Didn't see any indication in original post. Don't have any experience with a brightass light so have to pass, though I'd guess it's a controller issue that's on the fritz if all your LEDs aren't responding. Good luck!

Did you try their BrightAss techsupport site? http://www.brightasslights.com/site/support-request

I haven't used them yet but others have and have reported good results.

wouldn't have mattered even if it wasn't a bal. if the brake light illuminates with the front brake, then the bulb is fine. i'm thinking rear brake switch. you're gonna have to break out (no pun intended) the voltmeter and start checking everything from the switch back.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.
