LED Headlights 2013 Countryman

I just put in a LED headlights conversion kit into my wife's 2013 Countryman all4. Now every time you go to start the car the light emblem appears where the digital speed is in the tac, if you hit the reset button it goes away. The headlights seem to work fine. I was just wanting to know if this is normal. The lights are from Oracle lighting. This is also in the United States.

LED lights use less power than conventional bulbs so if the system originally had normal lighting it is probably thinking the low power consumption means a bulb fault so its warning you of possible bulb failure etc?

Maybe, I would think, you might have to have the computer re coded so that it recognises what youve done so the light doesnt keep appearing, or fit some kind of resistor in the supply to the light to fool it into thinking nothing has changed?

Was the upgrade worth it?

The lights in my wife's 2007 Cooper S are crap and I have been thinking about the led conversion. Would you recommend it?

Answer = No.

Try uprated bulbs like philips 50% brighter. There are lots to choose from.

The conversion kits replace the bulb & are known the dazzle oncoming traffic as the reflectors are s**t in all standard headlight minis..

It is possible to dismantle the headlight assemblies and fit lenses that make the lights work like oem. Even then you don't have washers that are mandatory or self leveling and its a lot of work.
