    Default LED's in number plate light?

    I know LED's dont work properly and strobe as side lights but can you fit LED number plate bulbs without them putting up an error or strobing when you turn the car off?

    Mine dont strobe. I thought the strobing comes from bulbs connected to the bulb check system?

    I may be wrong but I'm sure Leemarksmith has them and said his strobed, it's easy enough to change them so might be worth a try if you have them already Lee.

    They are apparently on the bulb check system it just doesnt give you a warning when they fail lol...

    General concensus is that they do strobe for about 30 seconds after the car is locked, although i'm sure someone has them and doesnt have the strobing issue... got some resistors in them or something

    Pre-face full canbus - mine strobe but only noticed it when I looked for it. No warning on the bulb check system.

    Got LED's in the sidelights with the cancellors, they strobe more noticably but again, no warning.

    Why do you want the LED's? I have Mtecs in mine and they are nice and bright... possibly a little blue though in all honesty
