That's very interesting Greg, thanks :o)

The faint glow can only be down to 
electricity flow through the circuit.

If you refit tungsten bulbs
I daresay you'll get a flat battery
after a few days.

The only oddity I've noticed in the van is they give a faint glow if switched on after the "expired timer forced off thing", if switched off they are totally off (no glow at all).

Would you be happy 
to measure current flow
through your interior leds
when they are aglow Greg?

To be honest, I'm not keen, as I don't want to mess with the connectors or short out the fuse (due to clumsiness).  

I'm selling my van soon and I have a whole heap of other jobs to do to get it ready for sale.  

The current used must be very very small, as even when fully lit LEDs don't use much.  I have often left my van for weeks between uses without flattening the battery, but that is with the interior lights manually switched off.
