It seems nothing I do will keep the failure code form showing its ugly head if I re-installed the LED bulbs. It looks as though the stock bulbs are going back in and I'm going to stop listening to advice about using LED bulbs. The stock bulbs were plenty bright enough.

Silvercreek the answer to get rid of the code is easy... buy LED lights with the built in resistor, I did in my Laramie and had no error codes flash. BUT, no one has answered my question from a few weeks ago. I put in the LED and in reverse the back up camera screen goes 20% fussy and flickers. Can someone solve this issue. for now i put the factor lights back in and put the LED's in my wife's CRV, amazing how bright they are.

Let me know on the fussy flickering screen issue with the LED'S... please.

I just emailed the guy mentioned on page 2 but seeing how everyone is have the error message, I don't know that I'm going to order them. Ill ask him if he has any lights with built in resistors. If not, Ill be sticking with the stock bulbs

they have every type of LED Bulbs out there that will work with almost any American and European Vehicle, tell him your truck, year, version, bulb you want and if you have EVIC he should be able to give you the bulbs you need. I have bought a bunch of bulbs for different vehicles from this guy and his stuff works well and he has some of the brightest bulbs I have seen. Hope this helps

thanks i'll send an email with my issue and see what they say.

needing a resistor in place is very common in locations that are monitored, the other issue is a hyper flash which is to warn the driver a bulb is out. the led's draw such little power that the vehicles think the bulb is out, the resistor creates the resistance the bulb would normally create.

Spoke to Chris, he said the issue is the regulator in the LED's and that is what's creating the flickering and snowy screen, I've asked if he has any suggestions.

I ordered 2 of the Samsung 7440 projector lights from the guy mentioned in this thread. Hopefully I don't get any error messages!
