Default LED Light question

I know I'm beating a dead horse with this question but I searched around a lot and this question is never answered. Why do some people who do LED Swaps, start experiencing problems with their keyless access? I know it is fuse related but is there a specific type of bulb that needs to be used mainly in the cargo area, so the fuse isn't blown? I'm planning on buying bulbs from superbrightleds and any info would be much appreciated.

I know Google is a useful tool btw that is what lead me to my concern

I swap out the cargo light bulb for an LED and began having issues with locking the XV but only when the cargo door was opened after unlocking. It's my understanding that I need a bulb that offers more resistance than what I'm using. For now, I just turned the light switch off until I get around to finding another bulb. I got the bulb from Diode Dynamics.

I swapped all my interior lights and license plate lights to LED using this kit:
08-up Subaru Impreza 5 Door LED Interior Lights (6 bulbs)

No problems for me.
