Exclamation Led rearveiew mirror lights!

I bought a pair of led lights to replace my reverse lights, so I could actually see when I back up in the dark. Since there is a lack there of with the factory bulbs since I have aftermarket tinted led tail lights. And the are support to be 921 but they fit a 194, so WTF! Lol idk but anyway, so I replaced my map lights with them. And there light hid's. There amazing and bright, but when they dim and turn off they don't completely turn 100% off! They stay very slightly illuminated. I was wondering if anyone knows what I'm talking about or have done the same thing and have the same problem. I hope it doesn't kill my battery or burn my car to the ground. Any advise would be great. Thanx

My friend has a SRT-4 and he has the same issue. He said what he had to do is put a resistor in series with the bulb because the car doesn't seem to like the resistance of the LED bulb. Do research online and they will tell you how to do it.

I can make my car RWD or AWD and also drop a Turbo for the amount of difference in prices.
