Re: Front Fog Lights

Just as a comparison; here is my 308 with the OEM standard fog lights shown with the LED side/DRL and LED headlights:




,,,and here with the new Mirror Reflector LED fog lights:

Re: High (third) Brake Light.

One small point I thought I should mention regarding swapping the high (third) brake light bulbs for LEDs.....when you remove the OEM bulbs use a small screwdriver/bradawl to gently close the tiny socket contacts slightly so that they grip the new bulb/LED tighter (I also teased out the contact wires a little on the LED to make a snug fit).

The reason for doing this is because if you open and close the boot lid very firmly, or regularly slam the glass down then that can loosen the bulb or LED in the high brake light so that it may lose contact and you may think you have a failed bulb/LED when, in fact, you have only un-seated it.

Simple enough to rectify but easy enough not to have a problem if you close the glass boot lid gently and not let it slam shut.

I have changed the number plate lights to LED ones. Now the interior courtesy light flashes and not working as it should when the car is unlocked or door opened.

Any idea what resistors I need to put? I have already tried the 50w 6 ohm resistors I had which didnt work.

Please advise

Most modern systems now do a bulb check by checking for continuity with a pulse of voltage not the resistance of the circuit I had to fit some capacitors to my fog lights when I swapped to LED to clear a single flash of the bulb and then bulb failure warning and no light on my DS5

I just changed mine and didn't have any problems at all.

Did you buy the same as I fitted?

What capacitors did you use? Was it connected to positive or earth?

I fittted them on my 108; there are also a couple of example photos of the reflector front fog light LEDs I fitted to my 308 but this is the 108 forum so I would think you may find better advice over on the 508 forum.

I have provided links to the LEDs I purchased in previous posts; use the most recent for the most up-to-date links.

Have fun. Al.
