Re: [DML] Interior courtesies delay unit interaction with LED bulbs

It's behaving correctly. I had the same problem when I put my LEDs in, 
so the white relay now sits in the glove box.

Until you get Elvis' updated relay, you can simply remove it. Then the 
lights will turn on when you open the door and turn off when you close 
the door.
