    Default LED Side Lights, Warning notice

    Just fitted LED side lights, but now i have the warning message telling me that the bulbs have failed, but they haven't, I'm guessing it's because the LED's run at a lower voltage.

    Any ideas how i can get round this?

    Sorry buddy, only way is to take them out and put normal bulbs in. It's all to do with the monitoring system. Plenty of threads on here about it if you do a search on indicators. Here is a link to a thread that has other links in it.

    well after reading the posts and looking at the complications, i've decided to take them out and put some xenon gas white light bulbs from ebay, should do what i want them to, change the colour, give a white light, and solve the sensor issue.

    Default A cure to your problem

    Hi there i'm new to this site and new to the world of diesels. I can help you out though www.ultraleds.co.uk have a load resistor that will confuse the computer and remove the warning. Just fit these to mine two wires and hey presto. they also do a resistor for led indicators to stop the hyper flashing. so check that you get the right one.
