    Default Bush Lapa and Defender..

    Been reading about the BL needing an accessory in the coupling or the BL LED lights do not function properly. Amarok & Ranger need this, Hilux apparently not. But what about a 2015 2.2 Puma Defender - anyone that can maybe comment please whether such is needed or not? Thanks !!

    Only issue on disco3&4 and range rovers that use CAN bus pulse, cuasing leds to flicker AFaIK. Not sure about new disco5.

    Easily sorted by adding resistors or normal bulb in series with led. Disco3 solution slightly more complex than disco4

    Isn't it the same with D3 and D4? Still have to mod mine.

    My led tail lights work fine on my Venter trailer except the little trailer indicator on the dash does not flash when indicating left or right. Only works when hazards are switched on.

    I think it is a power draw thing, one indicator light not enough power is used?

    This is on my Defender 2010 2.4 Puma

    Cheers

    I think D4 only needs resistors, to enter tow mode and disable reverse sensors. D3 is to stop light pulsing & activate tow mode to show on dash, so also needs relays on indicator & brake light cicuits to stop pulsing.

    Mine was based on this aulro thread. Think also covers D4 later-on. Posted details of mine on bushlapa mod thread, so maybe do search on thread.
