Rav 4.2 led bulbs upgrades

Recommended Posts

Do I need to buy the Canbus error free style Led bulbs?

Or just any old LED light?

Car bulbs must be "E" marked to be road legal so it's not just a case of "any old LED". In reality, however, a non-approved LED won't result in an MOT failure because the test doesn't check for type approval issues.  Canbus bulbs are only required on vehicles that have a system to check and warn of a bulb failure.

I know about E marking etc. I'm not going to do the head lights only really want to do the reverse bulbs.

So Do the MK2 Rav4 have a Canbus type warning system?

No - this model doesn't have a warning system. It might be useful to include the year of your Rav in your ownership list.

Do any of the MK2 Rav4 have them?
If not, then the Year is not really required.

If you have the year and model of your Rav in your profile - then you may get more pertinent responses to future queries.

The question was clearly about the Mk2 Rav4 (aka Rav 4.2)
So if none of the Mk2 have the Canbus system job done.

Try not to be so pedantic.
Lighten up a little.

Try not to be an a*seh*le when others are attempting to be helpful - it’s not a good trait!

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
