PostPosted: Sat Jan 18, 2020 9:53 am    Post subject: Front indicator LED bulbs? Reply with quote

Does anyone definitively know of any LED front indicator bulbs that are a direct fit (don't need an additional resistor) for the 997.1 and don't cause canbus errors?

Apart from the xenon headlights I've replaced every bulb on the car inside and out with LED's but I'm struggling finding a suitable pair for the front indicators.

I've now tried two different sets of supposedly canbus error free bulbs for them and both cause hyperflashing of the indicator arrow displays in the instrument binnacle and error messages.

Thanks in advance!

I have exactly the same issue, paid strong money for a set of Twenty20 no error bulbs and they do exactly the same as the cheap ones. Let us know if you find a set that works.

He doesn’t he means indicators, you know, the orange ones that flash when you intend to turn.

Right, we have a winner Smile
I fitted some Twenty20 LED indicators in the front of my 997.1 today and unlike the slightly cheaper 382CRCANA-2 Twenty20 so called canbus error free ones ( £24.99 Pair )they work.
They do flash very slightly quicker than standard but still well within the MOT requirements. And boy, are they bright, no way you'll miss those!

I paid up for some Twenty20 CanBus Error Free Bulbs...... They threw up errors, i tried their Indicator bulbs as well and no luck there either.
I tried cheaper and mid range ones and the 997 seems really sensative to any voltage drop,
