Hi guys,

About half a year ago I replaced the stock halogen tail bulbs with some good-looking LED ones. For the blinkes I installed a special relay to solve the hyperflashing, but now I'm having some problems with the normal red tail lights.
They will work great when I just leave, but after ~10 min of driving one of the lights will stop working. What I think is strange, is that it's not the same bulb every time, it is ramdomly "chosen". At first I thought the tail light relay might be overheating, but then both LED's should be turned off, shouldn't they?
I don't think it's the cableing, because when I turn off the lights and turn them back on again, they will work for some time.

I'm really stuck now, so any help and tips are highly appreciated!

Thank you,
Casper

When one of the LEDs fails, connect a voltmeter across it's terminals and see if you get 12V. If you do you know it's an internal failure within the LED and not a fault on the car.
