I just recently put in all new LED's for all my interior lights, only problem is all the map lights above the door and rear hatch stay on but are dime, floor lights on dome light all go off though. Any ideas whats causing them to stay on?

I wanted a different and brighter look to it. It looks great when they're on but after the doors are shut and your driving they stay lit but are just dimmer.

Since LEDs require significantly less power than the OEM bulbs, the current flow even when off is great enough to light them up. You'll need to add a resistor to the circuit to dissipate the excess power.

How do I go about doing that? Has anyone else had this problem with putting LED's bulbs in? I've seen some other posts on here where people have changed theirs out but haven't said they've had problems. I thought maybe it was the type of bulb I'm using.

I've definitely been having this problem for a couple years now. It really bothered me for the first few months, but I don't really care anymore, so I haven't bothered to fix it. consumedbywater is right, you just need to install a resistor in parallel i believe to one of the led's you installed, or i think keeping one bulb stock might solve the problem too, not sure.

But here's a fix.

I replaced all of my interior lights with LED. They look great and I have no issues.

Core, if you don't mind me asking what brand of lights did you purchase? Looks great by the way.
