    I don't have those, I don't like those. The main reason is that they are passive devices with no active current regulation. It's just five LEDs with a resistor....

    I can probably take a picture of OEM vs. my LEDs. I don't have what you call the "cube LED" and to be honest I'm not even sure what you mean by that.

    My VW unit is a magnet type valve - mono-stable. It draws about 250mA when activated. It is normally open so the coolant gets a chance to move through the heater core once in a while. When power is...
