If you are replacing incandescent bulbs with LED equivalent bulbs confirm that the LED units have the proper resistance to appear as incandescent bulbs. Some no-name LEDs do not have proper resistance.

Newer vehicles have more and more electronic controls for lighting. So adding or even reducing normal lighting load on a circuit may "confuse" the processor, perhaps making it think there's a short or a burned out bulb. On an unmodified vehicle, I don't want to go very far from stock wattage on any lights.
