    Default LED side light bulbs..

    I fitted some LED side light bulds last night, but they kept flashing, even with the ignition off.

    They are 4 led style ones.

    Is this normal?

    More like a resistor to mimick the current drain that the bulbs were once drawing.

    Either that, or put the existing bulbs on long leads and hide in the engine bay, and plug the LEDs into the side light holders.

    Lot of aggro to go through. As said just put m-tec's or Philips blue vision bulbs in instead.
