    Issue with number plate LEDs

    Had some no. plate LED units off HIDS4YOU and they've been working fine for ages (about a year) without any errors. All of a sudden they've both stopped working at the same time and given the dash light error...

    I haven't had a chance to try my old normal units back in, is there a fuse for the rear number plate bulbs? They are in tight and not loose...

    Very odd behaviour...

    Any thoughts?

    Was fine , had one that was on and off and think connectors had lost contact, replaced that one with a new one, worked fine, then suddenly both not working. Makes me think its a wiring problem as last time when one unit stopped the other one still worked.. .

    Over the last year, I purchased 2 sets of LED number plate lights from two sellers from eBay, the first set I got were faulty and threw fault codes as soon as I fitted, and the second set was okay although after washing the car a few LED's stopped working!

    The 2nd set I got from a different eBay seller now works perfectly! I guess it's just hit and miss with these units.

    Also, both sets from the 2 sellers arrived in the same packaging so really, 1 out of 3 worked properly.

    Would you prefer another set of bulbs or a complete new LED housing? I find those ones more reliable..

    I have these but as stated above, they can be hit and miss.. but give an amazing brightness at night and are canbus friendly.
