LED issue
So i installed LED's on the interior of the jeep. All of the lights work perfectly. The only issue i have is when i shut the car off totally, the map lights have a very low dim to them. They are still on. Cant seem to think why this would happen. Anyone else have any idea or have had this happen to them?

Re: LED issue
Leave one bulb stock...... The glove box is a good choice

Re: LED issue
not the glove box as this has separate switch!
I piggybacked another lampholder inside the tailgate with the original lamp in and fitted a led in the cargo fitting all work fine, Controller needs a resistance to operate the dimmer.

Re: LED issue
yea, the glovebox wont work.

what's the downside to having it stay dim? are there any currents running while the car is off? shorten the life of the bulb?

Re: LED issue
