I switched my dome/map lights to LED also from diode dynamics. Have had them for close to 6 months. Even when off they have the faintest of glows. I remember reading that it has something to do with the fact that the led uses such little power that even a small trickle that gets through allows it to glow. Another bulb like an incandescent for example takes a lot more power. And the trickle wouldn't be enough for it to glow at all. Basically, LEDs r really efficient
