Trying to convert my cars lights to LED's all-around, but this time, the car just doesnt want to recognize the new bulbs. The old lights work fine, but when i plug in the new ones, no activity whatsoever. The bulb company sends me a decoder, and still no activity from the bulbs. Anyone encounter this issue before?  My Highs are H1's, Lows are H11's, Fogs are 881's.  No activity from the new bulbs. The H1's and H11's are from Hikari, and the Fogs are from Beamtech.


I'm sorry


Generally most mechanics agree that there is a 50% chance that a LED conversion will not work. The most basic cause might be that they have to be connected differently from traditional incandescent bulbs.


So first, we have to confirm, if you followed proper guidelines and installed them how they are supposed to be? You can also try to check these on a friend's car to see if the bulbs are not faulty.
