HELLA LED Retrofit – LEDification for all!

Brighter, stronger, cooler. With the new HELLA LED Retrofit bulbs, you give the “eyes“ of your vehicle significantly more visual acuity – and without new headlights. Because thanks to LED Retrofit, existing halogen headlights now also receive a genuine LED upgrade with daylight effect in no time at all, simply by replacing the bulbs. The headlights remain the same – the light is breathtakingly better.

See for yourself – and switch to the new HELLA LED retrofit lamps

Possible issues – and their solution

Issue: Dashboard error message lights up
May occur in: Cars with bulb failure detection
Reason: The car’s lightbulb failure detection system is designed for halogen bulbs with the corresponding high wattage. However, LED lamps operate at low wattages. When the fault detection system detects low wattages, it reports a defective lightbulb.
Solution: The threshold of the bulb failure detection system must be adapted to the lower wattage of LED bulbs (CAN Bus). In this case, a CAN BUS adapter must also be installed.

Issue: flickering and dimming
Can appear in: Any type of car
Reason: The error is caused by pulse width modulation (PWM) in the power supply to the car’s headlights
Solution: LED light repair CANbus adapter must also be installed

Issue: No light
May occur in: Any type of car
Reason: Some LED bulbs are polarized (+/- pins). If the bulb, i.e. the pins are inserted reversed, the bulb will generate no light.
Solution: The LED bulb must be removed and inserted the opposite way.

Installation by a workshop recommended

The installation of Hella LED Retrofit Bulbs should be carried out by professional workshops – for the following reasons:

  • In some cases, a canbus adaptor may be necessary, especially in cars with bulb failure detection.
  • Due to limited space in the engine compartment, it may be challenging to insert the bulbs into the socket properly. To avoid damages, the installation should be done by a professional workshop
  • It may be necessary to use separate connector rings in order to fit the Retrofit bulbs into the socket. Choosing the suitable ring should be left to a professional.
  • Professional workshops are able to perform a proper fault analysis in case of malfunction.
