Given up trying to get them to work, just dismissing it as a ghost in the machine. Thumbs Up

Try LEDs with CAN-Bus resistors there. Had the same problem on my MY13 when using LEDS without the resistors in the front puddle lights. Am using these: http://www.hypercolor.de/LED-lamp-W5W-T10-side-Hypron-series

Good to know it wasn't just me and that my theory on the resistor bit was right. Thumbs Up Just leaving the filament bulbs in there, not worth (for me) trying to find something specially for them. But thanks for the tip. Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

Wooooohoooooo!!! Got LEDs working in the front door puddle lights.

It only took the demise of Old Bluie and the LEDs that were in the side light slot (different from the rest) and hey presto, they work!!!!

I can't remember if I got these from AF or HID4U as it was a long, long time ago but they work, that's the main thing. Must have a higher resistance so the car doesn't see it as a short. Happy days. Thumbs Up

PS And a pic showing the difference between the original bulb and the LEDs. As discussed above, leaving one filament bulb in the LHS map reading slot as the LEDs have a habit of killing your night vision if you need to put an internal light on at night.

I tried to change old blueish front puddle leds into whiter Vanssi leds and I cant get them work. Now even the old ones are not working. I checked the voltage and it seems that there is something wrong because there is no voltage on front puddles anymore. Is there a fuse for them?
Rear ones are working.

Try putting a couple of old filament type bulbs (the original ones) back in to see what happens. My theory is the car sees no resistance (LEDs are very low) and thinks it's a short. Putting the original bulbs back in will reset it and if they fire up then all is well, you just need LED bulbs with higher resistance. Thumbs Up

I changed the old bulbs to front doors and they work. It is strange that leds are ok in every other place but not in front doors.
Would those powerfulUKs led panels work on front doors?

No idea, bit of a gamble buy and see. I was just lucky that the ones I had in the old car's side lights worked.
