Are they Canbus? If not that may explain the fault codes though Canbus bulbs do not guarantee no fault code. My understanding is that Canbus bulbs have a resistor biuilt in so the computer thinks they are regular bulbs. Did not change any on my 996 but I did change all the bulbs in my 2015 Chevrolet SS. Had to use the Canbus bulbs or there were many issues.

You can easily add a resistor to eliminate the codes.

Most all LED suppliers also supply the plug-n-play resistors.

But they weren't.

Like I said, the resistor kits are idiot proof.
