I replaced the 2 traditional light bulbs with 2 colored LED lights (for the interior dome light) below.

However, the left light is very dimly lit when it is supposed to be off.
Will this cause any issue? Any suggestions / comments is welcome. Thanks.

No. You're fine.
Small amount of voltage passes through stock bulb, but not as efficient, so you don't see it.

Its not going to be a problem. I have had LED dome lights installed for over a year with no problems.

Thanks for the comments, Abarth Tamer and ksig421.

I just thought off is off (open circuit). I am just surprised that there will be residual current running through the LED.

More update….when the car is park and key is out. After a while, the left light is lit dimly. Now, it is blinking…but even more dimly. Weird.

Same here, not a problem in the least.
