I have upgraded the bulb to an LED and works great! However, when I shut my doors it's meant to go off but it stays on but only very dim! I keep it off at the switch incase it runs down my battery!

Any ideas? Please help! Thanks!!:)

Are you talking about an LED inside the map light (Above your head?)

Some LED's may glow dimly, however I believe if you lock your car (and its still dim) it will eventually go off as technically there should be no power to it? (Some LED's do stay on very dim).

Although I would wait for another reply, I presume it should go off within a reasonable amount of time.

It will still glow. This is because the interior light works of a switched earth, meaning there is always power going to it!

You need to order a "canbus" interior light. Your car doesn't have canbus, but the resistor in the bulb will stop the glow :)

Yes it would be LED. I believe it's 42mm festoon?

The reason the Led glows & the filament doesnt, is because the filament has a higher resistance than the LED.

The car has a power saving relay fitted. it switches off anything it can to save power. So after 20minutes of your vehicle being locked, all unnecessary circuits will be switched off (including the Interior light).

In addition to this, Your interior light will go off After 10minutes if it's on due to a door being open

You could leave it as it is, yes.

But in my opinion it looks rubbish (my car used to do it).

Just spent £2 on a canbus LED and problem solved
