Led map lights blowing fuse.

Post by Greg86 » Sat Oct 13, 2018 2:45 pm

I've swapped the number plate lights to led and they work fine. The same bulbs in the front map lights don't even light up and blow the fuse straight away. Can't seem to figure out why.

I have led in the boot and in the interior rear lights so it's not as though the car doesnt agree with led bulbs.

Anyone else had this issue? Could it just be a case of the car doesn't like the bulbs I have in the front?

Change LED's for ones with integrated resistor, or try uprating fuse for slighter higher value to see if that copes.

Thanks Gel.

Surely if they required resistors wouldn't that apply to the number plate bulbs, rear map lights etc etc also?

Yeah I tried a 15amp fuse in place of the original 10 and they blew that too.
