Folks,
I replaced working lamps with LED ones and they don't turn ON.
I re-replaced them with original lamps and they don't work either.

Fuse 27 (Under driver;s dash) is OK.

This is a 2012 Accord and i am not sure if wires would have shorted.

Any tips on how to troubleshoot this?

Thanks in advance

Edit: All other lights are working.
Edit: Voltage is zero on license light connector.
Edit: This is the LED lamp.

unplug the led and turn it 180 degree as led's have polarity and will only work one way

Txs for your comment.

I had verified the polarity on the LED with stock wire color.

After I submitted my question, I checked my car again.
I noticed that it asked me to enter radio code (this usually happens when battery is reconnected, but in my case nothing was done to the battery).
I also confirmed fuses for accessories and amp were OK.

Anyway, I entered radio code and activated the radio.

This also activated license plate light s.

I don't know how radio got reset and how this is related to license plate lights issue.

Your thoughts are welcome.

I don't have that radio code issue but just in case it ever happens, how do you enter the 'radio code'? Does each car come with its own radio code?

Yes, it comes with the car. Its a card that has 1_6 digits. I store it online as cards are hard to retain.

If you don't have one, then try dealer / Honda customer service.

I noticed now that my tail lights are not working (license plate lights are working).
All fuses and other lights are working.

Any suggestions?

I am confused now.
I am not sure which exactly is tail light.

The lights in the corner work but the lights (strip) right next to license plates don't light up. I am not sure if that's just a reflector or an actual light as I don't see any wires going into it.

are these rear / tail lights? They don't work.

Folks
All the rear lights are working except the ones as shown here.

Can anyone please tell me are they actual lights or just reflectors?

If those are actual lights ,.. please guide me which fuse should i check for? Any other suggestions?

Txs for your reply.

What a bummer on my part :)

My 2001 and now 2014 accords have actual lights but not for 2012 looks like.

Relieved to know my lights are OK.

Txs :)
