license plate lights not working :(
okay i thought the bulbs were burnt out so i replaced them with LEDs
but they still dont work! so what should i do?? is there a way to fix this?

already tried the flipping the LED 180 degrees and inserting it.. still no luck.

and regretting so much that i got Eurodezign bulbs, they overheated in less than 5 min and melted a bit of my housing, but not much damage.
Are the silverstar ultras any good? no over heating?? because i noticed my OEMs were sylvania or w.e. its called.

check all your fuses none are blown, then its time to do some wire inspections...

The eurodesign bulbs are complete garbage. They are about double the wattage as stock bulbs. I think they run 100w, which is way too much for a stock harness.

Don't waste your money on silverstar ultras, they crap out after less than a year. Spend a little extra dough and get yourself a nice HID kit.

Bro you have projectors.. GET XENON HID"S!!! I can't stress to you how much better the light output is going to be...

paul i have a spare harness for the rear handle as I bought a painted one.

that is if you find it burned a wire or got ruined somehow.

Re: license plate lights not working :(
one question tho,
arent sylvania's OEM lights? so wouldnt it be an ok xenon bulb or do they just suck badly?
if i do get H.I.D.s what should i look for? like main thing i have to watch out and stuff because i wanna get it locally.
