    Default Reversing bulbs

    Hi guys

    I just tried some Cree led bulbs in the reversing lights and as briliant as they looked, they threw up the ocasional dash warning (which I can live with) but strobed constantly.
    Is there a way I can replicate the resistance of a fillament bulb with an led light, that will wire into the rear bulb holder.

    Thanks in advance

    You can solder in resistors but the bulbs will still pulse due to canbus

    Resistor then relay is the best way to stop strobing.
