The Scenic shares the stop and tail light in one bulb. The first thing I would do is to buy one (or two because they are cheap) rear stop/tail bulbs and replace them either one at a time, or both together.

There is a strong chance that one of the bulbs is broken and when you turn the lights one, on if the tail lights is inadvertently powering the stop light in the same bulb, thus illuminating all of the stop lights.

The bulb type is 380 P21/5W Stop and Tail bulb, available from somewhere like Halfords for a couple of quid at the most.

Why do today what you can put off until tomorrow...

Wanna see what I drive? No pics of the latest Passat, but you can see the Scenic II here and the CB1000R here!

Previous Passat here and Bandit here.
Currently in martin999's garage:
2011 (11) VW Passat 2.0 TDi SE + options in Island Grey, 2011 (11) Honda CB1000R in Pearl Cool White... oh and a 2004 (54) Secnic II 1.5dCi Dynamique in Ottoman Blue !
