Hello saad-jay.

The headlights you have fitted look very posh, how about a photo of them fitted in the your C3?

LED lights cause problems with vehicles that monitor the current drawn by the circuit. You can get so called CAN-Bus friendly bulbs which have a resistor fitted in parallel with the LEDs to draw more current and fool the circuit into thinking its a normal bulb. You have to be a careful fitting these bulbs into fittings that can't handle the extra heat, the extra power they draw is converted to heat so they produce as much heat as a standard bulb. In a normal fitting this isn't a problem but may be in ones made for LEDs.

An alternative would be to fit a separate power resistor in parallel with the sidelight bulb circuit but fit it in a location where it won't cause any harm slightly away from the light fitting.
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence and pretend you never tried :lol:

Hi i have orders the power resistor off ebay. I have added pics. There are two screws each side of the bumper that need to be removed. I didn't have my phone on me when i took the the lights off. You would have to remove the inner wing plastics to get access to the bolts for the front bumper. The angel eyes lights are wired in to the side light with some scotch locks

Nope it's not my oil. I have a lot of scrap metal collectors on my road. They seem to have very old vans and its they who leak oil on the road. City council to not clean the street like they used to. They have given up!
