No they act just as regular interior lights. And for the alarm theft detergent (red/blue light) I installed a super bright blue LED from a viper alarm since mine isn't an alarm just a remote starter system with a kill switch, so even if some one wanted to take off on my truck they can't
Those look awesome, me definitely likes, nice job! Like the way they fade out like the regular dome lights a few seconds after you shut the door. Do you have it where they flash all the time, like that little red light that flashes when the alarm is activated?
