Many modern 21st century European cars such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, etc, all come with on-board computer systems that will detect when and where a light bulb is not properly functioning or burned-out. Since LED bulbs naturally have less power draw on the system, many European vehicles see this as a fault and as a result, a "bulb-out" error message appears.
Since 2008, we have come out with a solution for you: CAN-bus error free LED bulbs. This class of CAN-bus LED bulbs has either built-in load resistors or a magnified inductor to raise up the total wattage so they can “fool” most Audi, BMW or Mercedes-Benz's on board computers without triggering an error or bulb out warning on the dashboard.
Here at iJDMTOY, we carry a large selection of CAN-bus error free LED bulbs in sizes such as W5W, H6W, C5W, PW24W, P21, W21W, etc for parking position lights, daytime running lights, license plate lights, backup reverse lights and turn signal lights. You can use our CAN-bus LED bulbs to light up your European cars error free and worry free.
