If this still fail, I'll put the original bulb in place to reset the computer then switch it back to LED. Unless you have a good reset tool like GT or auto-logic to reset lightbulb burn message.

Thank you for your reply.
Just curious - how did you come up with 1W 240 Ohms.
The OEM fog lights are 55W. I am just curious if the math makes sense for 1W/240 Ohms in place of 55W bulb.
NOT doubting you - just curious about the formula. I used to be able to calculate this - but this was many, many years ago
