    license plate light issue

    Afternoon folks

    I'm new to the forum so firstly i'd like to say how do to you all!

    secondly im having a slight issue with my license plate bulbs.

    I fitted some SMD canbus friendly LED's about a year ago and not had an issue.

    i noticed the other night when i unlocked the car the bulbs illuminated for about 3 seconds and went off.

    i locked the car then re-opened and found they stayed on for about a minute then went off again.

    i found i had the same issue with my ambient interior lights, they did exactly the same thing, i found later that one of my rear bulbs had blown, once i changed the blown bulb it rectified the issue.

    i have checked for blown bulbs and all are present and working.

    does anybody have any ideas?

    Get a new set of canbus friendly ones, check connectors are okay, potentially consider oem audi a5 number plate lights!
