    Default led interior bulbs

    i've fitted led bulbs into my interior light , just a quick question, is it normal for them to not go completley out, as mine seem to have a dim glow even when they have gone out, if that makes sense, cheers

    My pannels do that, its drawing a slight voltage from the plugs, same reason as led sides strobe when off, I assume... Its all ok, unless its annoying you

    thanks for the reply mate, it's not bothering me at all , i was worried that it may be draining power when the car is parked up, but am i right in thinking the amount they draw is miniscule so would not drain the battery...i'm well pleased with em tbh, i fitted the 9 smd 501 bulbs into the interior light and it lights the inside up a treat...but when driving i noticed a faint glow from them

    haha this thread just made me dredded last few weeks come back and haunt me..


    i have done the same and noticed 3 days later in dark they are still on slightly after trying all sorts and going threw about 20 different bulbs i found out its fine and uses next to nothing power would take years for it to run teh battery down and to just live with it


    you can get a ceremic resistor that will sort this out but its not worth it imo

    here is my thread on vxro if you want to read it
