Flashing brake light on at all times...

Hi I have that retrofitted additional LED brake light that flashes few times before coming on. It is now not working when brakes applied and light stays on even when the bile is turned off and key removed from ignition....

I have not done any modifications, just noted that the brake light stopped flashing and coming on when brakes applied several days prior to this last issue of light being on at all times.

Any clews are welcome.

Mine did the same thing and it was ended up being ABS related. Needed a new ABS drain, pump whatever the stupid way too expensive thing was.
Do you have the wiring hooked up the the regular brake like under the tail behind the seat?
Try checking those wires, maybe something just came loose or got shorted.

If it turns out being the ABS module keep in mind that there is a place that rebuilds them at a fraction of the cost of a new one. I used a place in Moscow, Idaho (not sure of the state). I'm out on the road right now but I posted something about it in the blog below if you want to check. Mine is still working after a few months.
