Dome light

Installed a Festoon Bulb LED from superbrightleds into my Dome light, i have noticed when i open the door its barely on like its only getting partial power then when i start the car it gets bright like its suppose to be, also if the truck is off i can turn on the 2 front lights on the interior and it will again gain brightness to how it is suppose to be, turn them off it dims to almost nothing kinda flashing. Any suggestions?

My dome light stopped working in my 2003, so I stopped bothering with it. Let me know if you come up with a fix.

Seems to just have to do with the power that gets to that while the truck is off because if you use other things it will get a burst of power. Probably needs basically a power booster on its line, but no idea how that would work out.
