Default Leddle problem

Hi all, I have fitted led foglight bulbs to my 2006 307sw, the foglights are in
the front bumper, they are proper foglight leds and the ends are shielded not
to dazzle the opposition.
The issue is that the o/s light keeps going off
have swapped led over from side to side and no change
have fitted resistors with no change
no warning lights on the dashboard and everything else works
standard halogens stay lit.
any ideas anyone?

regards john

Check which pin is 12v and which pin is Ground in the plug using a multimeter. Halogens aren't polarity specific but LED's are.

Hi big k and thank you for your reply, I will check as you said although the
lights are H11 and the plug only fits on the one way, also the offending side
sometimes stays lit for several minuets before going off, it will come on again
if the fogs are turned off and back on again,it has me scratching my head

regards john

Normal bulbs are bad enough in foglights without fitting LED ones !

Led bulbs draw LESS current so its most likely a bad connection somewhere either in the wiring or the cheaply made bulbs it may even be the current sensing switching it off as it thinks its faulty.

The leds are NOT the cheaply made ones, they are of excellent quality, the led
goes out on the offside, swap the led over with the n/s and the same happens.

They are ALL made in china

As i say the cars electronics are not happy with the bulb so are turning the feed off or you have a wiring issue.

I cant see the need to change the bulbs anyway its not as if we have fog every day and any person who uses them when its not foggy is simply inconsiderate and selfish.

With a reply like that you will be luck to get any responses, we try to run a courteous forum.

Reliable is a well respected long term member and was just stating a point.

Why would you need to fit LED fog light bulbs, they will technically make the car illegal (as other than a few low wattage LED bulbs none are type approved).

Fogs should only be used when its foggy, where retrofit LED bulbs normally perform badly compared to a quality halogen such as Night Breakers due to the beam scatter and cause more bounce back in the fog.

Yes it is cheaply made, I know for certain it won't be ECE regulated, so shouldn't be used on the road. (But they are front fog lights and seeing as you'll only use them for 0.0001% of the time in actual fog, who cares)

What Reliable406 said, it's an issue with the electronics, quite probably the bulbs itself introducing noise into the system.

If the LED's are turning on, then it's not polarity. Original message wasn't clear.
