8000k chromiums won't turn off when car is off?
 
I turned off my car today when I got home and the lights didn't turn off, so I went back inside my car and flipped the switch for the lights and still no help. I decided to turn the car back on then off and the lights finally turned off, any ideas if this is bad or what is wrong?

It's possible that your accessory was running after the car was off. This happens when the car is driven for a while or it's hot out and runs the fan after the engine is off to cool the car down.

It's happened to me about 2 times. I just did the exact same thing and started the car again and turned it off. No big deal!

:werd: as JL said, when wired to the accessory wire (always on) this is common

Has happened to me several times as well.
I have LED sidemarkers and they stay on for a short while after car is turned off. Ultimately, the Chromiums will turn off on their own after 45-60 seconds. No need to worry.
