I need them in my life i have been looking at some way of getting bright white led's in to all the holders hhhmmmm
Even though I don't have the map reading lights I still get the random "glow" off one of the L.E.D's whilst driving randomly and it will switch on and off randomly too?
Any ideas anyone? Or should I just stick a 150kOhm resistor on the front light circuit?
Yeah stick a resistor on the front. The back runs on the same circuit so will affect that one too.
Just gone through all the pages in this thread and had a question regarding the number plate LED:
I'm looking at purchasing either:
Welcome to HIDCONCEPT.COM - The #1 source of HID lighting system, bulbs, and other HID components
the one that N8 is using
and was wondering as these already have an error canceller, does this mean I do not need to buy two 2W 150R resistors so that I don't get a DIS code?
also, will these overheat like the standard plastic 36mm festoon?
thanks in advance :laugh:
150 ohm 2 watt from maplins Metal Film 2W Resistor : Metal Film : Maplin
Just found these 36mm Festoons on ebay with built in resistors and heat sink. Going to give them a try and will report back unless anyone has already tried them?
I just bought some off ebay without the heatsinks and they have been working great so far. Depends on how bright you want to go really but these dont look too ott.

RE: Number Plate LED's
Been speaking to a seller on eBay and he has offered me the following 2 items for £16
239 C5W 272 Festoon LED Bulb HID Xenon White 36mm Light on eBay (end time 15-Apr-11 06:01:18 BST)
27w LED Resistor kit -Bulbs T4W,W5W (501),H6W (433c) on eBay (end time 19-Apr-11 15:51:12 BST)
If anyone could comment if they think the idea won't work or be better off another way.
Would the resistor kit be too big to fit in the number plate holder?
Update, absolutely wounded, I have bought some LED bulbs from Halfrauds as they were just there...
Tried one in with a 150Ω and a 120Ω resistor, worked perfect..... then tried the other one, the bulb is not only a lot brighter but then with the same resistor set up throws the DIS warning up???? stuck what to do now if anybody can help.....????
Did my footwell lights, puddle lights and map readers (still waiting on the 42mm bulbs)
all working great!
The footwells would flash when the ignition was turned but I fixed this by resoldering the resistors
Can't get the boot light working though!
hi, sorry for replying on this old thread. but ive just brought some h501 led ulbs of ebay. and yep, im getting the parking light code. to avoid this error code, where would i put the resistors and what ohms would they need to be. thanks.
you are better off buying canbus bulbs for the side lights as they come with built in resistors, i can supply you these if you need?

thanks for the offer. how much are they. what type of led r they. the ones i bough of ebay look really nice. its a pure white color. but would it be possible to just place a 150 ohm resistor across the two terminals. would this trick the to think that there is a normal builb inside it. only worry i have is the heat. dont want anything to melt as i know the resistors would get hot. maybe use heatsink resistors.
can this be used for the front 501 side lights for the audi a3. i have bought led lights of ebay. they do work but then turn of when i switch ignition on. would i just place the resistor across the terminals.
Canbus LED bulbs ftw. I have number plate Canbus LEDs and they look amazing without the hassle of soldering resistors and such like.
if you already have bulbs then you would be best off buying something like this to stop the error - 2 x LED 501 T10 W5W WEDGE CANBUS NO ERROR LOAD RESISTOR | eBay
i dont have any in stock at the min or i could supply you with it.
