Exclamation LED dome lights and map lights problem

recently installed ice blue LED lights for my dome and map lights, but for some reason the LED bulbs only light up bright when the truck is on or in acc, but when the truck is off and the lights are on they are dim, and flickering... I experimented and found that if i substitute the original bulb in place of one of the LED bulbs, it lights up like it would if the truck was on... can anyone help?

You need to add resisters to them.


All my late 1st gen truck kits I add resisters to them to make them work correctly.

Just yesterday I swapped out the factory 194 map lights with two of these from Amazon.

GREAT DEAL!!!!

I more than doubled the brightness of the OEM lamps and the light color is a warm white not cool. I bought this pack of 20 for another project and had a few left over. Nice cheap upgrade.
