Question LED brake lights on spoiler not working anymore

Let me start by saying the spoiler is an after market item. The LED brake lights suddenly quit working, and the other brake lights work fine. Is this a fuse issue, or maybe a lose wire connecting the LED lights to the brake system? Is it fixable, or am I just gonna have to life with it?? Thanks, Lori

Get in there and check out the wiring. Maybe bulbs went bad.

Put something heavy on the brake pedal so the lights stay on. Then take a voltmeter and see if voltage is reaching the wires that go to the spoiler. If it is, there is something wrong inside the spoiler (which is probably not repairable). If no voltage, follow the wires back and see where it is losing power or ground.

You know there is voltage in the trunk because the stock brake lights still work. If the fuse or switch were bad they wouldn't work either.
