    JCB 8080 Lights Error

    Hi, new here.
    Put new led lights on to a customers 8080, now it keeps putting up errors for all the lights open circuit. Must be down to the leds drawing less current and itís not seeing the new lights, havenít plugged the laptop in to see if thereís anything I can shift in the configurations.
    Anyone been there done that? TIA

    Welcome

    You usually need to put some resistors in series with some LED's to get the can bus system (or similar) to operate ok with them on cars .. so maybe something similar with the digger ? .. depends on the type you are using I guess

    I did consider a resistor in line to see if that cured it.
    Surprised me that a 2006 digger had such a fussy electrics system, most stuff that age has a fuse, switch and a bulb, more basic you couldn't get
