So I receive my LED bulb that I order online today, i put it on and try it out. Some reason my third brake light but is non LED just go out. Is this a situation that LED use less power and transfer all the power to the third brake light.

Thanks for who answer my question.

My advice is to put the original bulbs back in. The reflectors for the brake lamps depend upon a light source in a specific location and the aftermarket LED bulbs do not provide this. You may have acceptable light from directly behind the car (and even that is doubtful) but from off-axis you'll have little light for other drivers to see. Also, if you are rear-ended by another driver and you have aftermarket LED bulbs YOU may be deemed at fault in the collision.
