CANBus (bulb out question)

Simple question but I cannot seem to find any information.

I am assuming that the CANBus system runs off Amps and the headlight has to draw so much current for the "bulb out" light to not turn on. Does anyone know what that magic value is?

I am making a low amp headlight for an upcoming trip and need every amp possible. I have already tried an LED bulb replacement which throws a "bulb out" light and eventually CANBus turns it off. That LED bulb drew .5amps and the stock draws 4.8amps.

Any information about this would be helpful, even if it is just how to turn off the "bulb out" so the CANBus doesn't shut it off.
