I recently purchased some Cree Q5 5W LEDs for my reverse lights. Installed them and they work great. The issue is that when I get out of my car at night and the headlights and reverse lights remain on, when I hit the lock button on my key fob the car wont lock. It only does it once all the lights go off.

I know it's not the battery in fob cause I changed it and even used my other fob. Same issue on both fobs. I even put my stock bulbs back in and the issue never occurred again.

Could that mean that those LED lamps (when illuminated), *might* be emitting an electrical interference frequency that's powerful enough to prevent your fob(s) transmitting signal from being received by the RCDLR.

That was my line of thinking also. I'm going to order another set from a different company and see if this clears up the issue. If not, I will just go back to stock bulbs.
