    confused LED Sidelight HELP!!!

    Hi all,

    I've been looking at these and was just wondering if anyone on here has used them, they say that they don't show and bulb error failure on most cars which is why i was interested in them after having other LED sidelights that did strobe and show up as an error.

    Cheers in advance.

    All the time, when they are switched off, until you turn them on. Thats why so many ppl use mtech 501s and other 'normal' bulbs.

    I got rid of my LED sides, cos the strobing was doing my head in

    in the end i got mtec 501's with a blue coating as it looks sexy and matches my hids
    i got them from hid direct.co.uk and was only a fiver(ish)
