Hi everyone! Has anyone fitted some led lights for low beam and high beam which fits quite easy and are error free? If so do you have a link for them and could you please explain what are the steps? I know there are plenty posts about leds but couldn鈥檛 find what I was looking for. Thanks in advance!馃

Hi everyone! I鈥檝e tried to update my low beams with those f2 h7 headlights, turned out to be quite a tricky job. But in the end I鈥檝e done it( at least that鈥檚 what I thought). Went inside the car to check if they are working, and turned out right low beam, right indicator, and left side daylight not working anymore plus error on the dashboard. So I鈥檝e removed the new led and I鈥檝e put the old halogen back, came inside the car and wasn鈥檛 working anymore. I鈥檓 gonna mention I didn鈥檛 touch the left side lights at all, and I also get check brake light, check right dipped beam. Checked for any damaged cable or something like this but I haven鈥檛 seen anything being wrong鈥 Any idea how can I fix all these without going to a garage, as I鈥檓 a bit broken after all these winter holidays..

did you reset them on the dash,try a obd reader to see if any codes
On the dashboard I get 鈥 checked right dipped lamp鈥; 鈥渃heck brake lights鈥 and check indicator lights. Not quite sure how can you reset them on the dash鈥

Do you have the "dismiss" option in the DIC for each warning ?
if so do the dismiss routine for each one and see if that sorts it

It's hard to work out exactly what's gone wrong,is there any chance you've shorted something out when changing the bulbs ?
could you post a list of exactly which bulbs are now not working

Front left daylight lamp (the led one that looks like a strip)
Front right indicator
Front right low beam ( the one I was trying to replace)
And out of the brake lights only the middle one above the rear winndow works.
