LED Indicator bulbs??
#1
LED Indicator bulbs: Can they be fitted? Apparently the flasher unit is all part of the COM2000 unit and cannot be changed.
(I got this from a Citroen Authorised Repairer) so the only alternative would be to fit ballast resistors on each lamp.
Has anyone done this on a MkII Berlingo, if so how did you do it? :thumbsup:

There are LED bulbs available with the load resistors built in,otherwise I have been told that the resisitor has to be wired in line on the earth side.
But beware,they get very hot.

i got some led indicator bulbs in mine on all four corners, i got them off ebay from Hong Kong and they say they are error free and suitable for canbus vehicles not sure if that applies to MK2 Lingo though, anyway they work fine and are a much better orangey colour unfortunately while writing this i been looking on ebay for the seller and it seems he no longer exists but like i say mine are supposed to be error free so maybe they have got the resistors in like XTR has mentioned

I've put LEDs in the stop/tail lights to very good effect but one of the ways commonly available to fit
LED indicators seems to have gone out of the window because the Berlingo I have doesn't have a conventional flasher unit
and thus I can't change it for the LED compatible type. So I'll have to look for the amber lamps with built in ballasts.
Thanks for the replies there chaps! :thumbsup:
