Default HID headlights upgraded to OEM LED headlights

I have upgraded my headlights to the factory fit LED lights they were a straight swap and all work fine only issue is the dash indicator light flashes fast guess it's because it thinks the bulbs are blown I can get round this with resistors but would like to get the error disabled in the CCF
Does anyone know how I could get this done none of my local dealers are interested in helping

Mr. Kerry,
I'm not sure which Headlights you have upgraded, if you mean you have changed-out the Low Beams, which are HID Bulbs with Ballast, I would wonder why? As tye are really good Lights......I would change them back if you are getting a CanBus problem...If you changed out the High Beams and you are getting this error, you have used the wrong LED kit and need to go back to the seller with your problem.....They have sold you the wrong Kit!

I have replaced none of what you have stated. I have replaced the whole light assembly with the LED version that would come out the factory with should you ordered that spec. I have now solved the canbus issue with some resistors

Lightbulb Ian, The HID Light man!!

Ian,

Since I don't know which Light Assembly you have installed, I would love to see a Photo of them. I'm not aware of an LED Head Light Spec from Jaguar, nothing other than the standard set-up...…Also, if it came from Jaguar, why did you have to put in Resistors? You would think that the Jaguar Engineers would have thought of that already!

It is a factory fit option the cars CCF is told what it has when it leaves the factory. Jaguar don't seem to want to change that.

Ian, Sorry, but you are in the X-100 Forum! We talk about 1996 - 2006 Jaguar XK8's and XKR's on this Forum....No wonder you think I'm stupid! I don't even know what kind of Jaguar yours's is!!!

Please post in the proper Forum, if you want answers for your Model....!
