Do I need error free bulbs?
If you own a European vehicle, you will most likely need error free bulbs. Many European vehicles such as Audi, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Range Rover, Jaguar and many more use a CAN-bus (controller area
network) systems that monitors the activity of lights on the vehicle to detect if they are operating or not.
Since LED bulbs draw far less power than the stock bulbs, the vehicle’s can-bus system detects the low power draw and determines that the LED bulb is faulty. To stop this from happening, error
free LED bulbs have resistors that are built into the light which mimic the power draw of the stock bulb which stops the error message from occurring.
Error free LED bulbs are most commonly used for exterior lights such as the turn signals, head lights, parking lights, license plate lights and more. Interior lights typically do not need error
free bulbs, but for certain vehicles, it is required.
To determine what type of lights you need, you can search the year, make, and model of your vehicle on our website. If you do not see your vehicle listed or if you have specific questions
