    LED interior light

    I've bought some interior lights, but the problem is they seem to be constantly drawing power, as its on very dim.

    even when the engine's off and doors closed. I've put one of these lights in my boot as they're the same size. but the one in the boot stays off until you open the boot (obviously)

    I've put my original interior light back in, and it doesn't seem to draw power at all.... So now i'm back to using the original as i don't want a flat battery.

    whats going on here?? what can be causing it to stay very dimmly alight?

    I had the same type of lights when i had my mark 4, I never had a problem with draining the battery, the light was on very dim like you say.

    The car used to sit for 2weeks of everymonth and the battery still never went flat

    Because the LED draws such little power and the fact the interior light dims slowly it takes ages for it to use all the current thats avaiable for it
