    Apparently nothing stops the strobing. I think they'll just stop the bulb check warning

    The strobing is something to do with the bulb check system. I think you might be able to turn it off via tech 2.

    I did a thread about it a while ago. Waited for some electronics guru to pop up and say 'just use one of these' but no. It never happened.

    Yeh, that's right Wilko I said I would look into trying some things but haven't had a chance yet - will need to add it to the todo list.

    I still think there will be some way to solve this.

    Technically it's not actually the can bus itself that causes the problem (from what I can tell) its one of the units on the can bus that pulses the lighting circuit to check for bulb presence.

    Gonna have a look at the wiring diagram right now to find out more while it's in my head to do it.
