Common problem with LED's.... Some install a resistor somewhere in the light circuit and others install a filament bulb in the rear hatch or the glove box.... Somewhere around here there is more info on this issue... I have Leds everywhere and did not experience this effect....

so the stock bulb that was in the glove box should cure this problem ?

Should cure it man.... That glowing effect happens for 3 mins if I recall and then turns off....

lol when i 1st installed the led's i started to freak out too thinking it would drain the battery..but its such a low draw it won't do much. I've gotten compliments because its gives off that low ambient light like in the new M3's
