I got led bulbs and they won’t stay on. Does anyone know the best bulbs that have a white color similar to led that won’t short out ? That fit a 2006 vw passat

You’ve got to get canbus compatible or error free LEDs. (Or find someone who knows how to readapt for LEDs from filament - no dice so far).

The LEDs don’t draw enough current so the car shuts them off for safety in case the bulb is broken open. You’ll see like a 2-4V monitoring voltage until you replace with a higher current filament bulb or an LED with a resistor (error free or canbus).
