    the LEDs are known to strobe mate, don't think there is anything you can do. Im sure the resistor you can get for them just cancels bulb warning, not applicable to number plate light tho as its not checked, I will be corrected if wrong shortly!

    All this strobing people talk about would do my nut in lol. Mtec 501's are much better and as there normal bulbs there is no problems using them.

    i bought a set that someone said was a good buy on here, advetised 4 x led 501's.i think they said it never bought any warning lights up either . so i bought them and guess what, i got the warning light on.

    they look good and i dont want to spend any more at the moment. how can i get rid of the error message people?

    Depends where you fit them. In both of mine they would have been ok in the number plate lights but would bring up warnings anywhere else.

    Fit mtec's or led's with warning cancellers in.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
