Standard incandescent bulbs are not polarity dependent (+/-) like LEDs. To that end, you may have them in backwards.
Our overhead map & dome lights are controlled on a dimmer circuit, and this will cause problems with the LED operation unless a properly sized resistor (100 ohm/1 watt will do nicely) is soldered across the two terminals (not for the uninitiated); use a proper soldering iron for electronic work and DO NOT use the acid core solder for your radiator.
I have replaced my overhead lights with LEDs, and I can read a book from the light they put out. I used Cool White as the color, and got them from SuperBrightLEDs
