I changed mine a couple of weeks ago and at first, they looked brilliant. A day later, one had gone. They were cheapos off eBay.
The one that had gone would come on when I unlocked the car, come on with sidelights on ignition, and then go out when the engine was started. I left it in for a few days, then replaced both with new ones... same issue. This time though, the driver's side tail light is behaving the same way. I've put standard sidelights back in but they're stil broke. It's booked in to be looked at, the guy at Ford reckons there is a poor earth but I'm sceptical.
Essentially, my advice here is just be careful. I blindly bought cheap ones and am now paying the price! I think you can buy normal sidelight bulbs with a pure white light, that's got to be a better bet
not so good mate
yeah i have a new set of the normal sidelights with the blue glass to make the light appear whiter. i like these when i had them on my last car, they also lasted very well too.
I wanted to go down the led route as my indicators, brake and tail light are all led.
cheers for the heads up though mate, exactly why im unsure of cheapo leds.
