    Just spent the last hour fitting some led side light bulbs to the vectra but evert time you lock or unlock the doors the dam things flash for about 60 secs and it says parking light on the dash,ended up putting the standard one's back in

    Vectra C has canbus electrics, so it detects the reduced current because of the LEDs, hence the fault. You can get around it by fitting a resistor across the wires feeding the sidelight circuit.

    Trouble is the resistor needs to be a fairly high wattage 27 ohm one to trick the electronics out, so it's usually gonna be a wirewound 7 watt, which is fairly hefty
