Nissan Serena loose wires in rear brake light cavity

I've had some electrical problems lately with my car...such things as my front and rear lights coming on when i press the brakes! I was advised to replace my rear brake bulbs and spray the lot with wd40. I did this this morning, and it appears to have solved the problem...but whilst rummaging around the light cavity i noticed 2 wires unstripped and unattached at one end in the left cavity and 1 stripped wire unattached at one end in the right cavity!..Any ideas why they are there...also in the right cavity is a white plastic connection? box where wires are fed in and screwed in place...there is one connection place empty..could this be where the loose wire that is stripped should be? I've been trying to find electrical diagrams for my car to no avail..Please help, many thanks.

    Yes that makes sense, ....what would you do with the loose wires...can I just tape the ends up and leave them in there?

If this was a used car i would have to say someone tried to wire in a trailer wiring harness thinking to hook them into the existing cars wiring...and the wires may be shorting and have caused your symptom's

Instructions will be in the package - but in the event you dont have a factory plug due to theft - here is the vehicle's wiring color codes...

Car Radio Accessory Switched 12v+ Wire: Black/Violet
Car Radio Ground Wire: Black
Car Radio Illumination Wire: Light Blue/Red
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: N/A
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger: Blue

Left Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Light Blue/White
Left Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Orange/Light Green
Right Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Dark Green
Right Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): White/Light Green

Left Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Tan/Yellow
Left Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Gray/Light Blue
Right Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Brown/Pink
Right Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Orange/Red
