    You will need a resistor putting in series with each LED strip.
    There are loads of threads about this.

    It is quite normal for LED's to strobe or flash in this way, due to insufficient resistance through the circuit.
    It may or may not also put up a bulb warning symbol on the small left-hand display in the dash panel...the one that tells you when the doors or boot are open along with other warning symbols.

    HID's have the same effect!!, they use a canceller for this.

    Hi mate

    what led set did you put in? (as i want to put led DRL on mine and tech2 my normal DRL off)


    Why not wire it to an ignition live? that way you dont need to turn on the side lights?

    wiring to the ignition live would be best idea, if not wire to sidelights using relay to stop flashing.
