So... unsure if this has been posted before for not but... my tapatalk app search isn't really working well.

The interior lights in the roof of my 08 smart wont turn off. The rocker switch has full bright, off, and then door open full bright... how ever when on the "door open" setting, after about 30 seconds it dims but wont turn off. I waited about 15 minutes and it still didn't turn off... just stayed on but dim...

What is the cause of this and how do I fix it?

Looking at your pictures and seeing all the modifications the previous owner/ owners made, I'll bet the bulb has been replaced with a LED.
From my understanding LED'S are so efficient that the tiny bit of residual power in the car's system will cause them to glow even when off.
But I may be wrong too.

If it looks like this:



Then I’d say LED bulb in and it’s the residual. It drove me nuts so I went back to an original type bulb.
