Does anyone know the bulb number for the license plate ? I removed the bulb but the only thing i could make out on the bulb was 49L 12v 5w
Is this what you have ?I'm using 194 bulbs from v-leds in mine.
Thanks, I will order a set :thumbsup:This is what I have. They are pretty bright. Use code E936K3 for 10% off.

The ONLY time you need a resister with an LED is when the circuit is monitored for a "bulb out" condition. The lighting circuits are monitored for current draw. LEDs do not draw much current, so the computer (or flasher) concludes the bulb is burned out. The resister is just there to increase the current draw on the circuit to a level near equal to an incandescent (regular or halogen) bulb.Im fine with the price on the ones i mentioned. Wanted to go get them and install them today but didn't know if they would work for me. Will i get any error codes or any other problems if i use those? Noticed words in other led threads about resistor, canbus and error free bulbs so wasn't sure what i needed. If someone tells me that I'll be good with those I'll purchase and install them.
Thanks and yes its a nice difference. It even lights up part of the back bumper which is hard to tell in the pic. I was sitting in traffic the other night and noticed the backend of a new Mercedes and wondered why it looked much brighter and nicer than all the other cars around it. Then it clicked to me they use LED plate lights so i had to have them lol. Its a very nice bright white.Savagexx1 - Lights look good to me.
Price has gone up a bit . . .Just go on eBay and search 168 led, make sure the seller is located in the states so you don't have to wait for weeks to get them. I ordered 20 of them for like $6 a year or so ago and swapped out bulbs on 3 cars and haven't had a single fault on them.
Once again make sure the seller in in the USA before you place your order, and make sure they don't have high shipping, I paid like $.50 for shipping for mine. I'll look through my history and see if I can find the seller
