Dome light staying on 12 jku

I switched to a led dome light and I've been having a few cases where I leave the jeep in my garage and don't lock it but still close all the doors and the light won't shut off twice its caused a dead battery next time I went back to start it. Anyone else run into a similar issue? Haven't tried swapping the led back to a bulb yet but that'll be the next step I guess. This problem also only happens occasionally and hasn't happened when I've left it locked like at work

is it both lights staying on? I had my JUST my rear cargo light staying a few weeks ago, and couldnt for the life of me figure it out. but then i remembered bumping the light with my shoulder, while installing my daughters car seat. You turn it on by pushing the light, common sense i know, but it would go off when i turned the jeep off and come back on when i started it.
Maybe yours is as simple as mine was and you just have to push the light in one time.

You will have to use a Canbus LED to make sure it will work with the JK's electrical system. I had the same issue with my LED bulb and then switched to a Canbus LED. My dome light and rear cargo lights now turn off as it should.
