Angel eye out

I replaced my stock bulbs with led. Had them in for two weeks. Now now I get a right parking light malfunction warming. Angel light eye is out. Replaced with stock bulb and still doesn't work. Any ideas is there a fuse that could have blown.

What type of LED Bulb did you install?

If you replaced it with a stock bulb and its still nto working then perhaps the LED bulb malfunctioned and fried your wiring system...??

Have you contacted the company yet to see what the outcome of this is? I'm curious as to what has happened

LEDs run much cooler than halogen bulbs and are more efficient.

Hi everyone.
I had the same type of problem on my car. The strange thing is that both right and left hand side of parking light (angel eyes) went out at the same time.

Is this something to do with fuse? Any clue?

Bumping for a similar problem (exposed copper wiring). Angel eyes work at all times except as DRL. Any suggestions?

I have the same problem, installed Angel Eyes from topgearsolutions several months ago, and they have been working flawlessly. Tonight on the way home I get a malfunction that left side is out and about 5 minutes later another message that the right side was out. When I got home I confirmed that neither AE is working in any light switch position.

well, little strange that LED would burn out so fast so right the way I would say check your connections/cables/fuse. If fuse is good then make sure you get the power to the lights, use voltmeter if you have one, proper voltage present you know the lights are out (strange). If no power at the end then you know you have to fix your connection. Also, when installing LED lights make sure your cables are nicely tied in and don't move around (something that people often skip). The car bounces, moves, shakes, any movement at the end will eventually break the wire.

OK, I just had a chance to look into it and in my case it appears the bulbs are the issue as I'm reading 12 volts on the bulb terminals.
