Cool LED Replacement on 2006 325Ci E46

Hey guys,

Been replacing all my bulbs with LEDs

Very cool having blue LED lit interior


Come to doing the vanity lights behind the sun visors and now they do not work, (even with the original bulbs back in).

Tried to replace the 3 boot light bulbs with white LEDs and the dash warning light comes on and the boot lights do not work now.

What has happen to the vanity lights? And how do I get around these problems?
Regards da j-Bro

Try flipping how they are installed by 180 degrees, they have a positive and negative end

Tried that JS and then when that failed I put the originals (un-damaged) back in.

Any other suggestions?

Not sure why did you bother abot vanity lights...
Had a similar prob with led's in my numberplate lights, in my case a prob was coroded connections witch hardly a prob in your case
If i were you I would start with the fuses, and make sure voltage is there.
Had a bulb once witch looked ok but was faulty after all
