    WOW, nice touch...

    On a serious note, I would check the fuses and blown bulbs, hope you get it sorted.

    Turns out it is something to do with the fact all bulbs are LED's (brakelights, sidelights, number plate light) Has to be something to do with the load because as soon as I change either sidelights or brakelights the problem stops.

    Any Ideas? resisters?
