Footwell Lights Theater Lights

05 Acura RL Question: Are the foot well lights always on. Including when the car is off, locked, and all doors closed?
I,m wondering because I upgraded to brighter LEDs and I cant notice a difference between locked closed and running.
Also the OEM LED without the milky inhibitor seems to be always on as well and does not dim.

Thank you

Can someone please take 5 minutes and check their RL with the door locked and engine off and figure out if foot light is still on. Thank you. I really want to finish this DIY.

I just checked mine in the garage in the dark and i do not have any foot lights on, only the alarm system blinking. If that helps.

Footwell lights are off when the car is off. When the engine is turned off, the footwell lights are brighter, presumably to aid in exiting the car. When the engine is started, the lights dim, so much that you can barely see them. Same goes for the ambient lights in the interior door pulls and door pocket bins.
