    Default Help!! LED sidelights flashing!!!

    Hi everyone,
    Ive just installed some DRL's as you can see on my how2 thread so changed by sidelight bulbs for LED ones. I bought the canbus error free ones and with a bit of fiddling they dont set off the canbus error but flicker or flash when the ignition is on and after its turned off fo about 20-30 seconds.
    I bought a pair of resistors which go inline and plug into the 501 bulb socket and give you a seperate one to plug your LED lighrs into, which was supposed to stop the flashing - however now fitted they still flash!!!
    I wouldnt mind quite so much if I hadn't had someone pull over for me the other day assuming I was in an undercover cop car!!!!
    Has anyone else fitted LED 's without the flashing or is this something I'm gonna have to put up with? If so will it not fail an mot?
