    Default Canbus led sidelight bulbs 501

    Just fitted a pair I got off fleabay and i noticed that when you turn the lights off get out the car and lock it the two side lights flash at different times for about 10 flashes, I do not get any bulb warning like parking light failure, has anyone else had this problem with this type of led sidelight??
