Ok so maybe someone here can give me an idea of whats going on or how to fix it.

So I went to install LED bulbs on the license plate lenses. I have new lenses from LMR and did some research and found out that the bulbs on the license plate are the same as the gauge cluster. I had some LED bulbs from a cluster laying around so I figured I would install them. When I did however they didn't work, so I bench tested them and found they are directional.... So I turned them around and when the headlights came on they turned on for a split second but then turned off right away. I thought maybe I burned them out so I bench tested them again and they still worked.

WHAT COULD BE WRONG????

Im not sure if this was the cause, but I did blow the fuse that operates them. However I don't think that happened when I was messing with the LED's. I will try again and see if it works but who knows.

No idea. I plugged my eBay ones in and they work. Lol

Yeah check the fuse issue, but that's weird.

I was gonna say check the fuse and check back in here.

And yes, they are all the same 194 bulbs.
