Replacing number plate lights and side lights

Hey all. Recently purchase a pack of 10x 501 LED lights to go in my number plate and side lights to spruce up the look of my car

At first when I put the LEDs in the no. plate, they were flickering and were emitting very dim light. So I thought oh bugger, faulty leds... but when I took the LEFT led out and put the halogen back in, the RIGHT led started to work fine.... so I then put the led back in the LEFT socket and both worked fine... until I switched off my lights and put them back on.. and now they were both flickering again.

Same exact problem with the front side lights...

If I leave one LED and one Halogen bulb on the number plate and side lights.. then when turning my lights on and off all bulbs work fine.. but obviously I dont want to drive around with half of my car in LED and half as halogen haha... Any idea what the problem is?

I buy all my led's of Ebay.com, they almost always come from China, Hong-Kong, and are VERY inexpensive, and no shipping costs...
Sometimes they fail, and I just throw them away...
Watch for "Canbus ready" in the description though...!

Re: Replacing number plate lights and side lights

All car led lighting is made in and comes from China, so why not buy them directly from their scource...??

Re: Replacing number plate lights and side lights

For the license plate lighting: find a 2 led bulb that fits, too much light there looks bad imo.
