LED lights wont turn off

So I replaced all my lights inside the cab with LED's ( driver, passenger feet, and overhead light). Somehow they are still being powered but at half the power. I have my lights/door hooked to a switch so when my door are off I can hit the switch to turn the beeping and lights off. But when I hit the switch to turn it on, the lights turn on to full power any ideas? When I had the original bulbs in they never were lit half way only with the LED's.

Thank you

i had the same issue... i think since LED's require such little power, a resistor is required in line with the + 12 volt in to the light... i do not know which resistor - maybe some one else can post up!
