Parking Light/Brake Light Problem

There is a problem with my 1993 Accord 10th Anniversary Edition. Whenever the brake pedal is pressed down, not only do the brake lights come on, but the driver's side parking lamp also comes on. I do have an LED strip connected to the parking lamp as well as halos connected to the tail light. I'm not sure if there may be a faulty connection or bad soldering, but i was just wondering if this could be the reason why. Also if anyone knows how to fix this. I'm also sorry if this is in the wrong category, it's repair, lighting, and wiring. I'll try and get a video of it.

Some where down the line you got a wire connecting your brake lights to your parking lamps, i had a problem similar in my honda passport it ended up being the wiring for my tow connector. go back threw your splices and make sure your keeping everything in the same circuit. start with the last thing you wired in when you noticed the problem

Hmmm, maybe that might be the problem. Tomorrow I'll check my wiring of the halos, because I don't think anything in the front will be connected to the brakes.

Your parking lamps are considered the 4 lights 2 amber lightss in the front and your first filament of your brake light bulbs in the rear, if you cross fed your brake lights back to your parking lamp circuit every time you step on the brakes you would be feeding 12 volts to your parking lamp(s)

Well, I fixed the problem. But it wasn't anything wrong with the wiring! All of it was fine when i checked it, so I kept wondering what could be wrong, then i remembered that i had also switched the original bulbs to LED bulbs. I'm guessing that because i did this, and that LEDs take less power, the extra was sent back to the parking lamps, causing them to light up whenever i stepped on the brake.
