Default Help with LEDs

Hi all,

A couple days ago, I replaced all interior lights and all the white lights on the back of the truck with LEDs. They look awesome! Anyway, I noticed tonight that my cargo lights never fully turn off. If they're not fully on, they constantly have a slight glow to them. I had the key turned to accessory and figured this was the reason why, but even later when the key was out and truck was locked, my cargo LEDs continued to glow...

Does anyone know why they're doing this or how to fix it??

Thanks!

Is there a resistor in line with the cargo lights?

No resistor added. I can try doing that. Do I need one of those resistors used in conjunction with LED turn signals?

Thanks
