    Engine : 1.9 cdti 150

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 119k

    Default interior leds

    I fitted white leds in the interior courtesy lights instead of the yellow standard bulbs.

    They work fine, however, they are constantly lit very dimly, even with ignition off and car locked. Its barely noticeable but they are def on dim.

    Im assuming they will be drawing such little current that it wont have an effect on the battery with the car in daily use?

    It's normal on certain types, they go off after a while when you lock the car so don't worry...

    My side lights also flash or strobe so to speak but it dosent bother me they only do it for about 10 15 seconds then turn off. I've also got led in the number plate and they also strobe?

    I think there a how2 on here showing how to stop the strobe but not 100% I've read it somewhere

    My sidelights strobe for 15 seconds, then stop for 30 seconds, then strobe again. Not sure how long this carries on for cos I gave up watching it. Lol
