Changed rear lights , now getting bulb alert

Post by leeballleeball » Sat May 19, 2018 9:12 am

Morning all

Literally just changed my rear lights from standard to these

https://www.energizedcustoms.co.uk/shop ... mpaign=map

Now then I start the car I’m getting an alert on the dash

All I had to change was the reversing light. So I’m thinking as the other lights are led the car may think the bulbs are dead

Is there a work around for this or is it either put up with the noise or jsut get rid

Appreciate any help, thanks

You got it yourself :)

You need to code out the bulb check: I think you can do it if you use Carly, or you could PM Wibbles on here and he can do it remotely (for a fee :D ).

E87 118d, stock, plus PDC control unit drain, Parrot, debadged, Mothercare baby shades (but no babies), and occassionally a good layer of wax. Instantly forgettable, and thats the way I like it.
