Just swapped out dome, map, and trunk with sylvania 194 LEDs. When driving, the LED stays on very very faint. When the car is off the LED is off. Anyone know why?

Bump..

Anyone install LED on interior (dome, map, and trunk) and not have the bulb stay on dimly? I didn't notice them during the day but at night it's so annoying and so frustrating. I was so pumped to get these in too.

i know some years ago, people were having this issue...and they found a fix (not one that most would tackle). i thought today's cars and bulbs would have fixed that by now. mine do not stay lit at all. when they are off, they are completely off - no dimly lit bulb, but i didn't use sylvania bulbs.

I found a fix/work around - i put one of the oem bulbs into the rear dome light and turned it off. The remaining draw from the line seem to be hitting that bulb and since its in the off position, it likely is just grounding out or just ending there. No more dim lit map lights which is all i really care about anyway.

yes, that was the work around, sort of back when. some would just go get a light socket from your local auto parts store, tap it in under the dash and it was out of site..and solved the dimly lit LED's you are/were experiencing.

only lit up when the door opened...and off when it closed.
