It is time to admit that LEDs do not necessarily last longer than other bilbs and if they are poorly made they may not last long at all. I lost one too, a ackup liht bulb. It was in theee for a year or two max. The still-good OEM incandescent bulbs I removed had been there since 1998. Gotta learn about heat sinks or whatever it is that protects some LEDs and without which they die oo soon.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
