LED's in Map Light...slight issue/question.

So I put in some white LED's in my map lights. But when I turn them on w/o the key turned to the aux switch they are very dim and flicker. As soon as I a.) turn the key or
b.) turn my dome light on they are bright as mess!!!

What's going on?

Thanks guys!

I think that I have read in some other threads that they are underpowered without the key on.

Thanks Tommy. Sure enough that's what it is. I read the other threads as well after I had posted mine. Thanks!
