    confused Led indicators flickering

    Hi guys.
    I have a problem.
    Today i changed Rear indicators to these:
    http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...Id_165688#dtab
    I installed them with resistors.
    When i turn of my Vectra (Energy 1.9 CDTi 04) they flickering (which i red is normal).
    But they also flicker when i start the car - is there anything that can be done to get rid off the flickering - i'm asking because i hold up with fitting my front ones

    Cheers

    Only way to stop the flickering is to revert back to normal bulbs. The Vectra canbus system and LEDs fight like cat & dog.

    The resistor keeps the lamp out warning off. The flickering is due to it checking the bulbs are ok.

    It seems that every-time anybody fits mods to the lighting circuits...LED's, HID'setc....flickering problems are reported on here....

    Seems more trouble than it's worth to me....

    Glad I just fitted 'brighter' 12V 55watt Ring Automotive Xenonmax replacements in the dipped headlamps on our Facelift Club spec Hatch....strait swop along with Duncans Mod have improve things a treat....

    Cheers
