LED interior glitch

I recently got an LED kit, all went well and replaced all the bulbs.
The only problem is when I turn on the dome light through the "switch" on the front light panel. Everything lights up as it should and then in a couple of minutes both "main lights" front and rear "dome lights" do off. footwells and door lights stay on. If I turn it off everything goes off as it should on again and only the footwells and door lights are on.
I get home, turn off the car and then restart and all is fine.
So it is not a connection, and they do not over heat
???

Help, do I need different bulbs

yes, you need a different set, this is common with many of the LED interior kits, ours are error free or a full refund will be given

Did you contact the manufacturer?

If not we have a kit that is error free from HPB with a stellar reputation and service.

The main thing to look for is all your LEDs have a canbus which is in my interpretation is a voltage regulator like thing you can literally see it soldered onto the backs of the LEDs it's a uber small rice sized black in color thing.

I bought all my interior LEDs off eBay all in ten LEDs for less than fifteen bucks

Start pulling bulbs until you no longer have the problem reset the car via the ignition for any changes

Thanks guys. I realized that what I bought was cheap and it acted accordingly
I guess you get what you pay for
:-)
I ordered a set from a reputable sponsor on the site
Thanks
