Editor Notes: Some vehicle CANbus systems see the lower power consumption of LED headlights as a sign of a burned-out bulb, causing dashboard warnings, high-beam indications, or LED flickering. Installing a Philips LED CANbus adapter solves these issues. Installation is easy and takes only minutes.
