Ive wired in some blue LED door pins using the permanent live from the door pin switch and an ignition laive from the leccy windows so it uses that as an earth when the ignition is off. This worked for a day, then I noticed that the interior light came on very dim and the lights on the instrument panel all lit up dim as well. The car was locked and alarmed, why would it do this? Im very confused

There is no permanent live from the door switch, its a negative connection?

Hi!
The grey wire that goes to the door switch gets its +12V from the rooflight's +12V supply, right through the globe. You must have put resistors in series with your LEDs, cause they only work with 1.9V. These resistors are causing other lights to dimm. Get a dedicated 12V supply for the LEDs, maybe from your fuse box. Note: You still have to use the resistors! This will sort out your problem!
Chèérs!
