asked by on

Hello. The symptoms you are describing can be caused by a few different things. If the same lights as before are no longer working then it may be possible that there is an issue with the instrument cluster that is causing the problem. Another possibility is that the new LED bulbs were installed incorrectly, as some LED’s are polarized and require they be installed in a specific manner in order to function properly. I would also check the vehicle’s fuses to make sure that none of them are burned out and potentially causing your lights to malfunction. As these sorts of issues can sometimes be difficult to diagnose, if you are unsure I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, visit your location to diagnose what may be causing your lighting issues.
