    Default Problems with LED sidelights?

    Just a quick one...

    Since getting my HID kit about 3 weeks ago i've been through 6 pairs of LED sidelights!

    They only seem to last a few days before the message, 'parking light' is displayed and the LED totally dead.

    These are the ones i bought...

    Might just be that there cheap, can anyone reccommend any?

    Also is there anyway to install normal LEDs without getting the error message? Maby by installing a resistor or something?

    I've used a pair of that design (not from that seller).... worked fine for the couple of months I had them in the sidies...... moved them to the front main interior lights when I got some 8 SMD LEDs for the sidies. The 8 SMD lamps still strobe and still occasionally show as left side failed, but physically work fine.
