    Have you tried putting the originals back in? Isolating the problem.

    Sometimes if you put the LED's in backwards it can have adverse effects.

    Oh, and LED's don't "burn," unless the literally ignite.

    Common issue with LEDs and dimming. They draw so little that the control circuit doesn't see them. You need to add a ghost load to fix the problem. IE somthing that will provide resistance close what a light bulb would be.

    This is true, but would not cause them to stay on all of the time.
