    Number plate bulb warning light

    Hi all,


    Recieved some led bulbs and fitted them, both number plate bulbs are working but my number plate light warning on the dash has come on!


    Any ideas why?

    I am new to Audi but were the bulbs canbus? T8rups on here sells them for around £5/£6 and do not flag up errors

    These are the ones from T8ups, I'm sure there is a reasonable explanation as to why its happening..

    I read on my travels that they may need coding at 2009 if its a facelift? I could be wrong.

    On a separate note... I have fitted the trups supplied bulbs and they are superb!! DRL's are brilliant as well!!

    Certain years, newer ones have the possibility to code the led number plate lights yes, but needs a specific version of CE board & firmware installed in order for that coding to be accepted.

    I got a bulb out warning on mine last weekend when I went out for dinner
    with the wife. They were fine driving out there but after our meal the temperature
    had gone down from about 4 degrees C to -2.5 degrees C and as soon as I started
    the car I got the bulb warning, hopped out and checked and both were out.
    Switched off ignition, back on again and they were fine again. Just a glitch I reckon.

    Why not put Audi led's in which should work up to 2010 year if I'm correct, it's been a while since I looked.
    Mine have worked perfectly (2008) - just remember to bend the springs out (or there abouts) to match originals.

    Grab a cuppa and read this:
    Original Audi number plate LED's that fit the A3 8P - plug & play!
