Led headlights - stop sid warning

I just installed LED headlight … -explained bulbs in my wife's 2001 Aero 9-5 wagon. She bought this 90,000 mile beauty from my son. It is a museum piece.

She has a 2003 9-5 Aero sedan, and wanted more headlight power like her other car.

LEDs are great....BUT we get the warning that the headlights are burned out on the SID. This is because these things draw 25 watts rather than 55watts +.

Can this be turned off with a tech 2? I know I could add resistance but I don't want the extra load of heat.


Thanks a lot.
