yet another angel eye problem

the angel eye is acting weird. I wired the angel eyes with just a diode to the interior light, i tapped into the either #49 and 52 (interior light) wire on the fuse box. it's weird that the angel eyes will stay on constantly and they dont turn off after 15 mins.
Now im having another route of the wiring. I tapped into the purple wire coming out from the LCM of course I have a diode that i dont wanna ruin my LCM. However, with this setup the angel eyes look dimmer not as bright as when i tapped into the wire on the fuse box.

1. I would like to add the remote function to the angel eyes however they always stay on... any solution?

2. they look dimmer when i have it tapped into the wire from LCM, should i add a relay to give more power to the angel eyes?

thanks for any input.

Yea, mine have the shutting off problem too. It seems like if I go on a longer drive, they take longer to shut off. But sometimes it's random and even after a short drive, it could take like 10 minutes before they shut off.
I just thought it was a quality issue.
