Default running lights on when brake pedal pressed

2004 limited coupe. Whenever the brake pedal is pressed my front running lights(led) turn on. When the running lights are turned on by switching them on the brake lights turn on. I've gone through grounds and cleaned them up, issue still persists. any ideas? thanks.

Have you changed any bulbs lately? Do any rear lights come on as well?

I think some bulbs will fit 180 degrees out of the correct position and the bulb terminals short circuit the other bulb circiuit.
Thatís what I recall.

Sadly some at our age and even more sadly much younger people cannot recall too much if anything, at all.
