LED Lamps

I want to change all the interior 12 volt incandscent lamps , #194, in my Z to LED lamps-
3 Domes, 2 foot well, 2 courtsey lamps in doors, 1 glove box and 1 trunk. All use the 194 lamps- see picture. As this car compared to my Acura has all electrinic messages for failed lamps, oil etc, I have read that the standard NON Error Free LED lamps will give me Dash Error messages, as these standard LED lamps are not being recognized due to there low wattage and voltage. I have been told I need the Error Free or Canbus LED lamps, especially in the 3 Dome lamps . Can anybody confirm this?
