Philips 5W CANbus Control Unit (Twin)


Why buy the Philips 5W CANbus Control Unit (Twin)?

The latest generation of LED bulbs from Philips and OSRAM present excellent styling opportunities for drivers to take advantage of. LED technology not only looks great, but is also incredibly energy efficient with fantastic product service life. However, because existing vehicles are designed for the use of halogen based products, installing LEDs on many vehicles can trigger a warning light on the dashboard of the car. This is because LED technology uses lower wattages and so the vehicle believes that the LED bulb is faulty.

The Philips CANbus control unit/warning canceller for LED lamps eliminates this problem. Installation of this item bypasses the lamp failure function of the CAN bus system on the vehicle. It's easy to install onto the car - it simply clips onto wires. Plus, using this product doesn't have any negative impact on either the light output or heat management of the LED lamps.

Please note that EU legislation does not currently permit the use of retrofit LED lamps in a signalling application.

NOTE: This 5 Watt CANbus control unit is only suitable for us with small 5W LED lamps and is not compatible with headlight LED bulbs. Please find the CANbus unit that suits your particular bulbs' fitting and wattage here.

Philips 5W CANbus Control Unit (Twin)

5 Easy Peasy

Brilliant customer service product came really quick. Since it was late evening I decided to fit with no clear instructions or videos on YouTube it took me 10 minutes to realise it was a pretty easy affair. I'll try to help here - The Cambus is designed for LED Sidelights/Parking Lights. There are 2 clips with Cambus and 3mm double sided sticky tape. Both the clips, clips on to the negative and positive wire of the parking light. If you want to secure there is double sided tapes. I just tucked it in neatly. Job done.

5 Quality product

Unfortunately my alfa did throw canbus errors when installing the T10 philips side lights led. Ordered the canbus canceler and have to say I was impressed. One how easy to install it is (you only need a pair of pliers) and two on build quality. Had resistors in the past but this looks professional and has all installing bits with it. Great buy!!!
