    Hello people,

    So on my Audi A6 2010 Saloon one of my number plate light bulb is blown. So I decided to change both number plate light bulbs and went to buy LED bulbs from Amazon. So they finally arrived today and I fitted them on but they do not light and I get the warning light on the dashboard.

    Have I fitted it wrong? Has a fuse blown? Or are they not compatible with my car?

    Any help and suggestions are really appreciated.

    Thank You.

    I replaced mine with cheap one's off eBay and had no problems.
    Can you test the bulbs with a another power source to check they work.
    And if you have a multimeter , you can check the voltage at the bulb holder to see if you are getting power to the bulbs.

    I checked both fuse boxes (front and one in the boot) all fuses are working fine. I used a 9V power supply to try the original light bulbs and they both lighted up. When I put the originals back on still no light. And same outcome with the new light bulbs.

    Are the contact points clean. They can rust up, or even crack.

    It's more likely the car does not like the resistance values of the LED replacements you have fitted. The car does a bulb check when the ignition is switched one, people use the term can-bus compatible but the bulb check has nothing to do with the can-bus system..
