A few weeks ago i swapped out all of the interior lights in my 06 and 08 and everything seemed fine. Well i went out of town for a week and when i came back the 08 has dead batteries. I got to looking and noticed interior dome lights dont turn off completely. In the 08 when the door is closed the dome lights slowly fade out but never turn off completly. Ive adjusted the dimmer up and down and no change.

I used these blubs in the front and this one in the rear.

Has anyone else had this issue? The map lights work as they should its just the dome lights that turn on when the doors are opened and closed.

Thanks

there are reports that the LED's don't have enough resistance and in some applications they can cause issues

my 2010 doesnt have any issues with it and some days i go 3 days without driving it. I do notice that after the light fades out, its still on. the reason for this is it uses so little power that there is still some juice left to keep it slightly lit. but if i come back to the truck a few minutes later, the light is all the way out.
