    Default LED Parkers throwing up blown bulb signal!

    As above ive replaced the front parkers and number plate bulbs with bright white LED bulbs today and they are all working but still its showing up on the dash that the parkers are blown. I tried changing them opposite way around but the warning light only goes off when i put the standard bulbs back in. Has anyone else had this issue?

    Everyone does, LED bulbs don't have enough resistance for the bulb check systems.

    You can can bus compatible led 501 bulbs off ebay they have a built in resistor but they will still flash when driving and every so often when vehicle is locked.

    go for mtec 501 bulbs. OK not LED but you won't get strobing effect or any errors.

    From experience, the MTEC 501s are awful. Nice colour to them, but so dim they are hardly worth bothering with. Changed mine to some Phillips Blue Vision bulbs, which are much better in my opinion.
