    Default Sidelight flicker

    I have recently put LED canbus error free sidelights in along with HIDs. The HIDs work perfect but i have noticed that the LED will intermittantly go off and them back on again. Can this be rectified?

    it would appear that the resistors are preventing the error message appearing

    but not the pulse from the bulb check being noticed

    By not using LEDs for sidelights. Well documented on here that Vectra electrics don't like them.
