2 brake ligths blown less than year after last ones
#1
Howdo.
Couldn't believe it when a friendly copper helpfully pointed out today that both my brake bulbs had gone, I only had them changed late last year!
Is it just bad luck or likely a symptom of some underlying problem?
Would I be better considering longer lasting LED replacements, are they legal, if so can anyone recommend any from Amazon?

Thanks

Start simple check your fuses first - replace blown bulbs with a good quality brand of standard bulb - then take it from there.

Thanks. Is there any point spending a little more on LED in the hope of longer life?

LED lamps can cause problems and generally not worth the hastle on things like stop lights IMO.

I do believe some of the lads have fitted LED's with varying results but a decent standard lamp should last between 20-40k depending on use.
