so i had some spare LED's laying around that were the same size as the OEM license plate bulbs. i put them in and everything worked perfect no error code on the dash or anything like that the problem is that when i remove my key form the ignition and shut off all the lights the LEDs emanate a faint light that after a few minutes just turns off,

would this be because the bulbs are the incorrect size?

no,dont worry, it just because of LED used less power than OEM light bulbs,so when u turn off the car it actully still have some electric motion, that littile power maybe even less than 1V but still can light up the LEDs, so when everyting all shut off than there is no more power for LED so it turn off.
