Question LEDs

So I swapped out the cargo lamp bulbs for some LEDs. When the cargo light is not on the LEDs are just barely lit. Like 4 of the 19 leds are dimly lit. Anyone else notice this when they replaced their cargo lights with LEDs?

Yeah. I'm trying to figure out if it's the LEDs or what. When I put them in my reverse lights, it shorted something out that I am still trying to trace down.

got them from V-LEDs.com a pretty highly recommended site. Already emailed the company. Going to try flipping both over and see if that helps.

I have the dim when off problem in mine. I don't pay attention to it, it looks cool. Not sure what it is, but rotating the LED won't help, the LED won't work at all rotated at 180 degrees. I think it's just a voltage issue, since the LEDs take so very little to turn on, they might be getting a very small amount from the truck even when off. It's not a big issue, and shouldn't affect your truck or bulbs.

Hmm well, I don't really like the look of them when they are not supposed to be on. I'll wait on the seller's response to see what I can do...

Mine do the same thing. I believe it has to do with the dimming feature. Mine will eventually go off but they look 1/2 lit for a while. Nothing to worry about.
