Fitting LED sidelights bulbs leads to failure
Hi all. Fed up of the "standard yellow" appearance of my lights, I upgraded my main and dipped headlight bulbs to Halfords Super Brilliance Blue bulbs a few weeks back. I am very happy with them - the light is a good crisp white, and visibility at night is a dramatic improvement over the standard issue bulbs.
The only problem now is the yellowy sidelights. First up I tried fitting some single LED sidelight bulbs, but after five seconds, the car detected the low current draw and switched them off, indicating a "bulb failure". So I tried some "blue" (not chav LED blue) bulbs, which are slightly less yellow, but not exactly white. I was advised to try the "four LED" bulbs, which have a cluster of four small LED's in the head of the bulb, as they would not trigger the bulb failure warning. Well...I fitted them yesterday, and the car "saw" a failure and switched those off too.
So, I ask; what is the solution? The sidelights are the last bit of yellow in my pretty white jigsaw!
