I recently placed a shell on my ED and couldn't stand the glare from the third brake light. Since there is a CANBUS bulb check I installed a resistor in place of the bulb to avoid the "brake light out" message each time I started my truck. I purchased an 8 ohm resistor (http://a.co/d/cceNgxm) and a bulb base (https://ebay.us/ZE3SZD) so I could simply plug and unplug the resistor when the shell comes off. It works like a charm!

Or, you could have used one of the BCM programming tools to program it as an LED. Either way works.
