Anybody know why the new Astra MK5 wont take LED bulbs as sidelight bulbs...?
I fitted them to my car which is a ball ache in the first place, switched um on and they light up for a second and then just go off... Need answers NOW!!! lol Any chance that the ECU thinks there is no bulb there because LEDs use such low wattage or what???

cheers.

I presume they work like some of the newer bmws whereby they have a control unit that measures resistance of each light circuit hence it knows a bulb has blown. Suspect astra h works the same?

Yeah tis true.. there is a way around it.. by fitting an inline resistor.. but sounds too much like a ball ache to me.. Had the same problem with my Veccy 3.
