    Hi people I purchased a set of LED rear lights, and fitted them this evening but however the lights throw the error message on the dash so the car thinks both lights are out!!! is there anything I can do or do I have to go to BMW and get them to program the codes.... these are the LEDs I purchased so (they are after market not OEM) if the codes need to be reset can they still be done even if not OEM lights....
    My car is a 2002 318ci btw

    LED's run at a lower resistance than normal bulbs so unless you got resistor packs with them the lights wont go out.
