I recently put in LED interior lights on my 2004 KC LE. I noticed the other night that when the switches are turned to the "door mode"(with the doors closed) they still faintly light up. When the switches are turned to "off mode" they completely turn off. Its only the two map lights and dome light that does this. Has anyone else seen this? Is this normal because they're LEDs? Its like when the switch is on "door mode" their is still a little power going to the light and the LEDs pick it up. I never had this problem with the stock incandescent lights.

I don't know if it's normal or not but I can tell you that mine do the same thing. Also I have one bulb that refuses to light up when its cold out. Makes no sense , I know, but it only does it when its cold. I tried reseating it but it didn't help.

Its possible theres some voltage trickling through that the normal bulbs dont care about. Check it with a volt meter.

I know this thread is old, but I am having the same issue. Anyone else encounter the same issue and a method to resove?

Its just the nature of LEDs. You could wire up a resistor, or wire up a hidden incandescent bulb somewhere to use up the low current. I also heard can bus Leds might prevent the ghosting as well but I am not 100% sure

Yeah that's how I solved my "ghosting".

This is common in Nissan models, After your ECU shuts off in about 3 minutes or so it will completely shut off. This is just the nature of the beast as Spoonman has mentioned above. My partner and I are about to release a new premium LED interior kit called the " perfect fit " which Putco also has on their product line but way over priced. New LED kits will not only be brighter but ghosting will be solved. Again this is nothing to worry about cause LED require such little power that a slight power leak will cause them to ghost. Thanks to baseballfanz for posting a fix, you always have have something to bring to the table.
