Fitting LED Number Plate Bulbs to a Vauxhall Astra J

Have you tried upgrading your Vauxhall Astra J number plate lights to LED? Only to be faced with the dreaded bulb out message on the dashboard? You are not alone. This is a very common issue on the Vauxhall Astra J and can be a very fiddly issue to resolve.

Luckily we have the answer for you, using our 10W load resistor you can now enjoy an error-free dashboard whilst using LED number plate bulbs.

The Solution:
Many people believe fitting any old load resistors will resolve their issue, only to find they trip the ECU and lose their number plate lighting altogether. This is because the load resistors fitted draw too much power on the circuit and trip the ECU, cutting off the power supply.

We have tried and tested many load resistors for the Astra J, and found that our 10W resistor fitted to only 1 side will remove the error, whilst not tripping the ECU. Fitting only 1 load resistor draws the right amount of power to fool the ECU into believing it has the original halogen bulbs fitted, fitting 2 resistors is enough to trip the ECU.

Luckily we stock the perfect resistor for this right – 10W Canbus LED Load Resistor

Once fitted, you are free to use any LED bulb you wish, but why not give our options a go? Our bulbs are very high quality and extremely bright!
