    LED sidelight problem

    I tried the search but couldnt find anything

    I have now bought a second set of led sidelight bulbs but they either dont come on or only come on for a split second then nothing

    Please could someone explain why and a fix to the problem or point me in the direction of a step by step guide as not great with electrics on cars

    also

    If i change the stop/tail lights, indicator bulbs and fogs for led bulbs will i also have a similar problem

    thanks for any help in advance

    Welcome to canbus controled cars. The LED's draw less current so the car thinks the bulb has blown and stops supplying current to that bulb

    You may be able to fix the problem with the right size ballest resistors but don;t quoe me on that
