LED bulbs.

Post by leeshez » Mon Jan 18, 2016 8:41 pm

Hi i have added some LED bulbs to the rear of the car. I have noticed whilst the engine is on the lights will flicker ever so slightly randomly whilst turned off. Does the car need coding? Thanks :).

As I've just put some leds in my high beams and they flicker if you have the iCarly app I got informed you can change turn the voltage check off. Did u get a warning on dash. If u don't have the app then yes coding will be required to turn it off

Yes i have a F20 and i dont have the carly app. I do have the means to code the car but i am not sure how to do it.
Also i have not had any messages on the dash as of yet.

Your cars will need coding so that they recognise the bulbs as LED. I can advise where to look if you have a cable / E-Sys etc. If you're North-West based near to Preston I can do it for you.

It needs the cold and warm bulb checks turning off.

sounds like XXXCorps has this covered.

Could you direct me how to do this on E-Sys. I have cable and software etc.

Rear indicators at the moment, which are flickering every 1min with 20secs between left and right.

Looking to do Brake lights in the rear cluster too.

This thread has got me back to an issue i had a while ago with Led reverse light and gave up on.

I wonder if anyone has managed to get reverse lights to stop flickering.

As we only have the 1 reverse light in the M135i i ordered an extra bright cob led (canbus) which is the nuts but flickers due to the warm check.

Coded REM
RFS_L_WARMUEBERWACHUNG
RFS_R_WARMUEBERWACHUNG
&
RFS_L_IS_LED
RFS_R_IS_LED

Did both left and right as i couldn't work out if it was left from the front of the vehicle or the rear so coded them both as there is only 1 reverse light anyway.

No joy, still flickers every few mins with the warm check.. Ended up putting the standard bulb back in again but would love to fix it and put that bright sucker back in again... People might have a fighting chance to see when im reversing out of a parking space then...

My LED reverse lights don't flicker; go through every setting in REM using the methodology listed; you'll crack it!
