    Default MOT Failure ? LED Side Lights

    Good evening all

    This is probably a very stupid question, please don't flame me but will my flashing LED side lights when all lights are switched off be classed as a MOT failure?

    Its going in this Thursday late morning. I can change them before hand for some normal boring 501's from Halfrauds if need be.

    Also I have removed my front chrome V for painting. Will that in anyway cause me trouble for the MOT. I can put it back on in its sanded form if required.



    Please see the video of my vec on tick over with all lights off. Its very dark and taken with an Iphone but you will get the gist.

    Many thanks

    Lack of chrome won't cause an MOT failure - not unless the bit of the grill left on the car has obvious jagged edges to it that could harm a pedestrian.

    ummm.... oh yes. I drive with them on all the time at the moment until I can work out the best way to wire in some normal 501's before them to fool the canbus. Mind you they are great at night for extra light, extremely bright but not to a point of blinding on coming road users.

    Right looks like im dropping the front once again thursday morning.

    Thank you for your replies peeps

    EDIT: Im sanding it and then laying on the primer but after that its going to a Coach works for the right paint to be applied. I know my limits :-)

    @Kellsy84 : Would like to see the finished result when you get a chance.

    the only way to stop led lights flashing is to put on a seperate switch. so if i was you i would take them out just for the MOT .
