Default Led courtesy light???

My courtesy LeD lights wouldn't turn off. When I close the door take out the keys and lock the doors. After a few seconds the lights turns on but not hella bright. What's wrong what should I do? Will it drain my battery

Yes, it will draw power from the battery while the car is off, but won't kill it very fast. Try wiggling the LED a bit make sure the connection is clean and what not. Or if all else fails, replace the LED

try disconnecting the battery for a while, and then hook it back up again.

did you do any other electrical work to the car?

Something is causing it to continue drawing power.... so all other interior lights turn off except the courtesy lights?

Check the door jam sensors to make sure they are closing when you close the door, when you open the doors those pins release and turn the lights on. Or it can be something so simple as having the map lights on. Check the buttons and check the door sensor(s)
