License plate led bulb 2015 altitude

My wife bought me led replacement bulbs for the interior lights and the license plate lights. I went out to do the license plate bulbs and the stock bulbs were not was I was expecting. They are rectangular bulbs and it looks like they are built into the plastic tab that covers them. Has anyone run into this? What is the proper bulb or part to replace these? Everything I have seen online shows those bulbs being the same as the bulbs used for the rest of the interior lights but that is certainly not the case. Anyone else run into this?

Stock license plate bulbs are already LED.

Just look at it, 2014+ Grand Cherokee come from the factory with LED. If you look at it you'll see a circuit board with an LED chip on it.

Thank you both, i didnt realize they came with LED's stock. When i tried to replace them is when i saw the circuit board which prompted my question. I watched some clip on you tube of a guy replacing the LED's and it showed regular halogen bulbs that were in the license plate lights. Thanks again for the replies.

That must have been a '11-'13 as those still have the standard bulbs. It wasn't until the 2014 refresh that they added the LED plate lights.

I have these two bulbs left as well!! I cannot figure out how to get to them. I am thinking the entire overhead console needs to be removed to access them...don;t know this, but I do know you cannot access them by popping off the plastic cover over the dome lights.

Anyone replace these??

Look at one of the stickies on this subforum and/or do a search. These are already LED, with a 2700-3000K color temperature. A few people have done the replacement, but it requires soldering. I chose to replace everything but the map lights.


Here is one link on the map light replacement - 2014 replacing bulbs with LED's interior , replace headlamp/fog

Appreciate the info...thought they looked LED just different temp, now it makes sense! I wonder how hot they get? Could maybe put a light blue film tint over them for consistency...will look into this and report back

I will not be replacing these then...I can live with the current setup

Re: License plate led bulb 2015 altitude

Anyone know where (besides paying $50 at the dealer) to get these led license plate light replacements for the 2014 GC? I haven't been able to find them anywhere?
Thanks
