I did this for added resistance to the circuit. Its basically the same as leaving one incandescent bulb in one of the sockets like my video shows except I am able to retain the all LED look that I want. This sort of works...i still have to press that switch for the bcm to click on then I get full power to the affected lights. Its just kind of a mickey mouse approach because I still have to switch a dome light on before my cargo switch to get full power to the cargos. I want everything to work as it would with regular bulbs.....I don't want to make any sacrifices lol. I wish Ben or Cornell would respond because I'm almost certain they have ran into this and have a better approach.

I had the same problem on my Denali and on my duramax. The canbus bulbs fixed my problems. Mine don't get hot, warm to the touch but not hot

Where did you end up getting the canbus bulbs from? And did you use canbus bulbs for the maps, dome and cargos?

I ended up adding resistors for the rear dome courtesy lights. I got them at digikey, they are 100ohm 1/2 watt. There is a nice spot to solder them in once you remove the dome light housing.

I also added a VLR25 resistor from VLEDs to solve the issue with the cargos. I don't have time to mess with the maps, but i'm fairly certain that the 100ohm resistors from digikey will do the trick there also. Hopefully this helps anyone who has been dealing with these issues. I have been really impressed with everything that I have bought from VLED's including the resistor. It is very expensive stuff, but all seems to be very high quality. The guys at Vleds have also been extremely helpful to me with everything. Highly recommend them, you get what you pay for.
