    Question are these compatable??

    i wanted to buy some courtesy lighting for the car
    im planing on buying these lights

    ive read on here that the astra doesnt like LEDs and think its a short fused and supply poor amounts of power to it
    so my question is
    will these work simply by connecting them to the interior light or will they need a resistor put in or something else

    As far as I know, the CANBUS system should detect these and then not power them, but then thinking about it, it might only be monitoring the power draw of the interior light. You'll be better off waiting for somebody who knows a bit more about it to come along.

    I think there are previous threads about this around the forum mate.
