Interior light

Hi guys please help me. My roof light stay lid on door mode even when all door are close. Just a little light. Not bright. But when i open my door it become normal ( bright)
 
Have you checked bulb/bulbs? :unsure:
Mine started to behave same after I changed trendy led bulbs.
Like you said, it's so dim that it doesn't bother me while driving.
 
Some cheaply made chinese LED ones do this, it's because the circuit inside the LED doesn't have a resistor in there in the right place, and the length of the wiring has some capacitance effect that keeps it lit very dimmly even when the circuit is broken by the switch

it's only a few milliamps of current and while that wouldn't be able to dimly light a regular bulb, that's enough to dimly light an LED. it won't drain your car battery by any noticeable amount, it's less than 1/10th of a single watt per hour of drain
