Lightbulb Interior Map Lights will not turn off

I need help. I was replacing my stock cd player with a new stock cd player. Now my Map Lights dont turn off. I'm not sure if there is any connection between the two but any advice on getting my interior light to turn off would be appreciated. Even when i lock my doors remotely the lights stay on, when in the past they would quickly fade off.

Interior Light

Have you checked the switches that are actuated when you close the doors? They are usually very easy to test & replace.
