LEDs..will they throw an error code?

I'm looking to possibly install some LEDs in the license plate and reverse lights. Does anyone know if this will throw any error codes?

yes, the check control relays need to see some resistance. For the plate lights, I ignored the check light but then discovered that one of the LED's was in fact completely out and the other was blinking. That's why I removed mine and went back to new filament bulbs. The look wasn't worth it to me. You can run them in the reverse lights as they are not checked.
