    Help Needed Please

    i have mk4 astra in which i changed all the interior lighting to leds now they seem to be working in the reverse order, like when i open the doors they go off and when i close the doors they come on and have tried playing about with the switches above the back doors.

    any help is much appreciated

    its nothing to do with the polarity, i know that much because as above they go off when the door is opened and come on when closed
