    Hi everybody,

    I made led circuit to use it as dome light in my car.It works goo but there is a little problem.When i closed the doors it should turn off completely.But it isn't.It keeps to light a little bit.I mean it lights too poor but never turns off completely.The LEDs are 16x5050 SMD leds.So what can i wire to make it turn off completely when i close the doors?Thanks.

    This is the scheme of the circuit.

    Did you measure at the 12v?
    I suspect it is solid state switched.

    Try a 220 ohm, 2 watt resistor in parallel with the load.
    (just guessing).
