never had a fault light come up on mine, i drove around for a week without any sidelights and never had a fault light, does it even have one?

it should do. because the led's are a different power and it should send a strange signal to management system of car.

Have something to contribute?

Not to put a downer on your lights but I had some led strip lights (used on a 12v system) same as what you have fitted and they only lasted 2 months!!!

defeats the purpose really to wire drls up correctly you need relays and it should be wired to the ignition so that they automatically come on with the ignition on these drls that work only on sidelights whats the point the sidelights do the same job they may look a bit better but they wont last as they arent correctly wired up also as leds have a lower power rating then youre bulbs either the leds will be getting more power or the lights will get less

Hi mate, I found your supplied information on the subject of LED lights, very useful, but need some help with my problem if you can help?
I also fitted some LEDís as per your instructions; everything works ok except the LED lights are flashing with the indicators, I used the same two connections as shown on your photograph of the connector, but the LED running lights are flashing with the indicator lights, when I have the side lights on. Any idea what I need to do to put this right, before the law men pull me up. I have already had a car in front pullover to let me past, as he must of thought it was an unmarked police car.

PS
My lights are two separate units not like the Audi lights, they look very good and make the car much more visible, I don't want to have to take hem off, if I can help it.

Any advice will be much appreciated

Many thanks

SBW

I think having separate LEDs looks better than a continuous row ...

they do look good, more professional almost... but i had a set, and with the picture, they dont seem to be many that go the full length of the lights, which i think dont look as good

Apologies for bumping an old thread but I'm away to fit DRls next week and wondering which number on the plug is the feed to the dipped beam headlights?

Haynes manual says LH light dipped beam is Violet/Orange wire & RH is Brown/Blue, does that help?
