****First of all - It's a great product.....a lot brighter than BREX, PIAA, PMB, or OEM. ****

I have the "error" too, but my passenger side LUX 2.0 is out.

I'm going to talk to mds82 later about it.......I'm sure it's an isolated incident.

hmmm. mine are working fine. i don't think i get that error. but i tend to ignore the messages because i get it from the LED license plate lights. i should check to see if it says anything about parking lights.

Just check with mds82. I had Lux v 1.0 on my car before and I never encountered any error messages or premature burning out. V 2.0 should feed off the same power wattage and thus work similarly on the car.

Exact same issue here. I had mine installed 2 weekends ago by Marc, and for the next couple of days the error message would appear and disappear randomly, even though both angel eyes were working fine. I've been checking ever since and I haven't seen the error message again.

For the record, Marc was extremely cool about this and offered to help if the issue came up again.

I say he is in good mood. When he starts using internet lingo like "STFU" or "RTFM", then you know he not in good mood.

sorry for thread hijack.........
