    Default Any police officers on here???

    Hi,

    I have fitted LED side lights but when I lock or unlock the car they blink for about 25 flashes at aprox 1 second intervals. Does anyone know if this would be illegal? Impersonating a police car etc or something? They wouldn't be blinking when the car was moving....

    Default Resolved! Some info for you guys.....

    Hi guys,

    I just called the local police station and they said that it's ok as long as the car is stationary and I'm not in it (which would always be the case then parked up and being locked or unlocked lol). FYI canbus no error ones DO NOT stop them pulsing. They pulse cos the car is checking if bulbs are blown but the leds use such little electricity that they illuminate, where as normal bulbs would not. Hope this helps some peeps cos these look amazing when on. I have white HIDS and these are super white LEDS, 4 x SMD's per light! :-)
