    LED sidelight help

    Hello again guys another little brain tickler for you.

    i bought some led sidelight for my a4 and I made sure they were error free ones and canbus friendly I have just been out in the rain none the less to fit them got them fitted and working no problem then all of a sudden a worming on my dash saying sidelight out and both have gone out when I turn my lights off then on again they work then as soon as I put on main beam they go off again?

    not sure what's going on but the lights work fine with the standard boring bulbs.

    any help would be great cheers

    Just because they are billed as error-free or Canbus friendly doesn't mean they are; most are not. If you contact forum member T8ups, he should be able to advise you on a suitable error-cancelling resistor, and then supply it as well.

    W5W led sidelights you can usually get round CANBUS errors by using CANBUS bulbs. I have a set of CANBUS proof sidelights and they work error-free with no resisitors.

    I would suggest sending yours back to the seller as there is obviously something not right with them. Perhaps name and shame and provide the link to your purchase.

    I got my CREE leds from T8ups along with the canbus loom. Have a look at EM Tuning section of the forum for some pics I put up there.
