    Had this with cheap non canbus friendly LEDs.

    Can you show me what you bought.

    If you get the 8 SMD 501 LEDs from hids direct you won't have a problem.

    That's your problem chum. They are not Error Free LED's and will cause problems with the vec and siggy and its canbus check system.

    Have a look here.

    http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/advance...=&inc_subcat=1

    I got quite a few of these as they last (not like the ones i got from ebay which failed in under two days, all four of them but I got a refund)

    http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/501-err...ite-p-497.html

    They seem to have many more bulbs now than when I got mine from them but the above ones work lovely in the interior.

    Cheers

    i have canbus error free lights in my map lights as their white so when im looking for something i can see better they were bought for my side lights but kept strobing in my headlights so changed back to standard
    but in the normal interior light front and rear i bought these
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1807221213...84.m1439.l2649
    normal cheap and nasty leds and dont have any problems at all and they look great loads of people come up and have a look at night when i get out
    im sure the seller will have normal colour in the same type of bulb

    Oh and some may say that the canbus system does not check the interior lights and that would be correct, but these cheap bulbs will cause you much grief when you put them in as you have found.

    In my mind stay well clear of cheap bulbs. I have bought 4sets of the 8 smd's and only one went south which Hids happily replaced free of charge. Since then (over 6 months I have not had a problem with them)

    Its your choice but I would always buy the more expensive, thats just me
