Reverse LED bulb gives error

Post by Blitzball » Sat Apr 11, 2020 7:23 pm

Hello,

I ordered from ebay a boot LED light bulb and from autobeam interior LED light bulbs, all fitted no issue occurring.

Today my reverse LED light bulb arrived (https://autobeam.co.uk/collections/vaux ... verse-unit)
and once installed it lights up but i get an error message.

Do you know why that happens since all the rest operate properly?

The computer reads all the exterior lights and its quite a sensitive system on the corsa, think quite a few people have the problem when installing LEDs.

There was a company lushlightingcity but they seemed to have ceased trading.

Interior won't give you errors as they aren't part of the system that displays the errors on the dashboard.

I bought the Lush city one a few years back and it gives no error warnings.....but to be honest the light output is still poor due to the size of the unit itself...

I think its may only be a potential problem come MOT depending on your mot person. You could just swap it out and then put it back in after.

Also if the led failed theres no way of knowing till you see the light not working.

Overall not really a big issue.

I kept everything as spares and i learned how to replace it in less than 5 minutes so it will not be an issue.

Thanks a lot mate.

Don't see the point of replacing the reverse light with LED as you barely go backwards

If you haven't already done so consider replacing the number plate lights with LED's as you use these more often

Just for the looks hehe. I have also replaced them.

I put a p21w resistor in parallel to the light bulb with scotch locks and the error is gone.

I’ve replaced all my lights with LED’s, number plates and all. Error messages everywhere. Been told depending on who does the MOT if it would be an issue or not as all lights are working etc.

I’m going to change mine back for when the MOT comes around
