    Default LED Running (side) Lights ?

    I have come to the world of Vectra owning from a Volvo and they have the lights on all the time (didn't really need to tell you that did I ?). I like to run with my side lights on all the time (and it also illuminates the instrument panel which can be kinda dark) so I would like to to put some really night LEDs in instead of the standard bulb.

    Any suggestions of which are the BEST LED sidelight bulbs please ?

    Default

    not sure if you can tech 2 the sidelights on all the time but with reference to the leds unless you are a wiring proffesional then i cant really be done!

    the vectra has a (now pay attention) "circuitpulsebulbcheckcircuitthingamabob"

    which means every time the car engine is shut off, the sidelights switched off, the car locked and/or unlocked then standard led's will flash/pulse and look abit like a disco in your headlights

    and you will need led's with built in resistors to stop from getting a warning error becuase the above bulb checker always alerts you instantly a bulb goes (or if it thinks a bulb has gone by not getting a standard value returned from its test thing)


    its very complicated and im sure someone will correct if im wrong about any above info but hope that helped??

    Default LEDs

    Thanks for the reply. My idea was to turn on/off the sidelights manually (ie when I start driving) but had forgotten about the "bulb out" warning.
