Default Weird goings on with bright lights indicator

I replaced all the dash lights w LED's including the brights indicator. All seemed to be working correctly before putting everything back together. ?But not the indicator is illuminated when the headlights are off (even when the engine is off and lights are off) When I turn brights on the indicator turns off.
I didn't do anything to wiring just changed bulb. Any ideas?

Thanks Jeff

can't help ya with why it's lit, but if you do take it back apart to investigate, several of us found the LED was too bright in the high beam indicator location. you might just put a bulb back or even leave it out. i left mine out. when i'm on a country road squinting and looking for deer, the darker the dash, the better.

not telling you what to do but it's something to consider.

Thanks I just took it out hopefully not a big deal, The LED's are white and they seem to be nice and bright. They dim too.
The stock brightness was just too dim for my liking.
