I should have been more clear. If your fonts are installed and stock rear do you get the error? Thanks.

(at the time the retailer had told me the same thing about the license plate leds. Telling me that sometimes 2 identical vehicles will react differently to the bulbs

My plate lights have not thrown any codes.

I think the pdf online shop manuals are like 20 bucks.

You guys want me to be the guinea pig and install resistors into these LEDs?

See if that solves our problem?

Installed error free rear turn signal leds from shark racing and I can confirm they do work fine ( no fast flash or error code). Fronts not working for me absolutely need equalizer. Bonus info : I changed reverse lights to led and they work fine too. Next I will find the wire harness that comes out of the head light and install a load Eq. Got the info on what wires are what from the dealer today, gonna tackle this when I receive load Eq

On my audi they sure did throw a code, however I'm happy to hear that they worked out for you. I will be installing the reverse, rear turns and licence plate bulbs this weekend.

Now we just have to figure out how to put 2 load Eq for the front turn signals
