    Default Power resistors to stop LED problem?

    Has anyone tried using power resistors to stop LED lights flashing/strobing etc?

    What does the Canbus system look for? Does it just need to see a 5 Watt current draw for each bulb?

    The system is looking for this: about 0.3 Ohms when the bulb is not light, and 5w current draw when light.

    The power resistor would have had to have been 33 Ohms so looks like it wouldnt have worked then
