Default LED

Ok, so I was just at Canadian tire doing some Christmas shopping when
I stumbled on Replacment LED lights for tail lights. I figured what
the heck, buy one and try it. I plugged the light in pressed the
brake. The brake lights flashed and then nothing. The tail lights
would stay on, but not one single brake light. Turns out, the bulb
blew the stop fuse not allowiing the lights to go on. This was quite a
surprise as LED's run on less electricity then standard bulbs...don't
they? Any help would be appreciated

Haha probably. I Installed the bulb in the parking lot of the store,
when I found out this happened, I turned around, returned it and asked
where the fuses are LOL.
