LED Headlight warning message (HELP!)

Hi, I just got a 2019 Niro LX with Adv Tech pkg. I swapped out the headlights, fog lights, license plate lights, back-up/reverse lights, and all interior lights with LEDs. I’m now getting warnings for the drivers fog light and the passengers headlight. I ran a CANBUS module in the drivers headlight and passenger headlight. Could be a faulty CANBUS? Could need a CANBUS on fog AND headlight??

UPDATE: As of my drive home last night, the warnings reverted to just the passenger headlight and no longer warned of the fog light or the drivers headlight.

I would imagine it is the bulbs. I have an 18 LX with the tech package and changed my head lights, fog lights and reverse lights and have no errors.
I have seen problems with some of the cheap eBay LED's throwing a code on my sisters car. She ended up putting in a different brand bulb and the error stopped.

Yeah, old brand was: CATIZON (bulb) and XtremeVision brand capacitor (9005).
My ALLA Lighting fog lamps seem to work fine.
I have ordered: ALLA Lighting 10,000 lumen 6000k 9005 bulbs, with another capacitor/resistor/canbus from another company to test.

I'm tired of the ding-ing.

Hopefully replacing the bulbs or the capacitor will fix it; they are supposed to be delivered tomorrow.

Got the ALLA bulbs in, and drove 3x 15 mins or so, no issues so far... will report when I have tested it further.

No CANBUS needed?!? We will see!

I feel pretty confident posting that everything now seems to be working 100%. Signs (especially white speed limit signs) reflect even in daylight, no error/warning messages on my dash. Here are all of the lights that are installed (no CANBUS/resistor/capacitor modules required):
Headlights: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FK6TJMD
Fog lights: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07G5WJ4ZK
Back-up/Reverse lights: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07G5SD5G5
License Plate Bulbs (x2): https://www.walmart.com/ip/SYLVANIA-...-of-1/52621695
For interior, I used 4 of these: DE3175W LED from Philips (labeled "30mm FESTOON," bought @ PepBoys)
Also interior, I used 2 of these: 158/168/194/12961 … 194W LED from Philips (bought @ PepBoys)

This was all for a 2019 Kia Niro LX w/ Advanced Technology Package, USA model.

iamteeg, I'd like to do what you did on my 2019 Niro LX (no tech package) -- is yours still working OK (no warnings etc.)?

For someone with zero wiring/car repair knowledge, how hard is this to do? Tools needed? Could you post instructions on how you did all this?

Thanks!

The NIRO headlights are a closed canister with the halogen bulb inside and most of the heat energy is dissipated in the light beam. This is not the case with LED and there could be too much heat building up inside the light, even with the use of a fan, as the hot air will stay inside the sealed light canister.
I personally will be cautious before replacing the headlight halogen bulb with a LED.

that may be true with certain type of LED/Xeon bulbs that has over wattage. but one i have in my Niro is only rated at 20W with 4000lumen output and fanless. housing is "cool" to the touch after one hour of usage verses "warm" for halogen that originally came with the car.
