Default Flashing LED C-light

Installed the OLM LED C-light bulbs about a month or so ago, and recently have noticed that the passenger side bulb flashes every 7-8 seconds after they have been turned on for 15-20 minutes. I unplugged the bulb and plugged it back in to make sure connection was solid. No fix.

Anyone else having these issues or know a possible solution?

Thanks.

Probably a bad bulb. With time it will flash more often

The OLM bulbs are crap. Mine did the same thing, and they'll do it every time.

Unfortunately they're one of the best bulbs for illuminating the full C-light, the quality is just not great.

I swapped mine out with "Sylvania Zevo 194 T10 W5W White" LEDs from Amazon. Very good reviews and quality on these and they're more white compared to the OLMs, which look blue in comparison.

Subispeed is sending some replacement bulbs. I'll run these until the issue begins again (assuming it will) and if it does, i'll try a different bulb.
