[DML] Interior courtesies delay unit interaction with LED bulbs

Hi guys,

I installed some LED bulbs in my car since I like the whiteness of the 
light from them.

With the LED bulbs my courtesies delay unit stopped working, leaving 
the interior lights on indefinitely. So I put the delay module on my 
bench and found that my delay unit needs about 250mA of current draw 
to reliably turn off after the delay time.

I could reverse-engineer the module and answer this for myself, but 
I'm feeling lazy today and through I'd just ask first. Does the delay 
unit require a minimum current draw to function correctly (and 
therefore is not compatible with LED bulbs in the interior dome 
lights) or is my module behaving eratically and needing replacement?
