Number plate bulb

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Bought a few days ago this bulb for my number plate lights and today I received it.

The problem is when I turn off the lights the bulbs are still working. I tried each way but I had a same result.

It was only 25p and free P&P. I wrote to the seller and he said he will send me another 4 or 6 but I dont know whats the real problem.The standard halogen bulbs are working fine.

If you know something please let me know as if the bulbs are wrong I will ask a few extra from the seller.

Ah, that's normal - assuming they get dimmer than normal?

If you leave them 15 minutes or so, they should turn out :)

It's not an issue with the bulb, as Triggerfish has said they will go out after a while. The LED bulb I have in the rear does this (the other one is part of the camera & doesn't).

You could get 'canbus' compatible ones but they just have a higher resistance, the only reason yours stay on is because the car keeps that part of the electrical system (amongst others) partially live for a while, and as LEDs require little current to illuminate by design, they'll illuminate for a short time until the current is cut.

Its just the residual current in the cars electrical system which powers them slightly. Because they are smds they need very little power...hence why normal bulbs wont on as they need more power. They are perfectly fine as mine do this and i haven't had any issues in the past 6 months since installing them and my angel eyes
