Mercedes aftermarket lights

I bought two different sets of LED H7 lamps for my 2006 W245. But both sets flash at about 2 second intervals. With or without canbus error adapters.

Any ideas?

The reason why your LED bulb strobes is because they are very sensitive to power, while incandescent bulbs are not. A small amount of energy is enough to light up an LED bulb so when you start up your car, the electrical impulses being sent is just enough to power the LED bulbs, resulting in the strobing effect.

To fix this problem you can install an LED resistor which mimics your regular bulbs or get a LED kit that is error free, it includes the resistor.

Contact the seller. They will sometimes send you the resistor for you to install, free of charge.

Hi dear Rox Olid, Have you figured out the problem yet?

To be honest. They're not strobing but flashing. On 1.2.3 off1.2.3 on 1.2.3.

I bought a set of canbus error capacitor kits, but that makes no difference.

Did your car have halogens or Xenon bulbs?

The car originally has halogen bulbs. But I'm not happy with the yellowish light they give. I would like a brighter whiter light without using a higher wattage bulb.
