    Rear number plate lights

    Help please, bought a set of LED bulbs from ebay, went to fit them and they did not work, fitted the originals and now they don't work, DIS error now showing, and cannot find a specific fuse. Has anyone else had the same problem?

    Turn the ignition off for about 30 minutes and see if the fault goes away, if it does not then, you will need to clear the fault codes with VCDS

    Cheers CB, been off all night and still not cleared, I'm more worried at getting the lights working again, is it as simple as new bulbs?

    If your old bulbs worked, then fitting new ones wont make any difference. Chances are you need to have all the fault codes cleared which should sort out all the issues

    Hey there Charlie, don't know about your specific problem except that I fitted LED bulbs to the number plates and they wouldn't work without fitting a resistor. Kept on getting the DIS error showing. I fitted the rersistors and they've been working fine for around 6 months at least I'd say. They look top notch and give off a really bright white bluish tinge to the rear of the vehicle.
    Please see my thread below

    Hope it helps some
