License plate bulbs are used to illuminate the rear license plate on your vehicle. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescent, lighting up in a yellowish color.

Newer luxury cars use LED modules to illuminate the license plate with modern, cool white light. By changing your license plate bulbs to LED, you can easily add this luxury look to your vehicle! 

The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb.

 With low price and easy install, this is one of the best, easiest modifications you can do to improve how your car looks at night.



SMD2: Similarly compact design, with two 5050-size Epistar SMD chips, driven at high power for maximum effective brightness. Outputs at 180 degrees.

HP3: One high-power SMD under a diffusing lens for truly even output (no hotspots). Constant current design and air-cooled base for superior reliability. Features dual contact pins and nonpolar function for easy installation.

HP5: Four high-power SMDs, under a diffusing lens. Just like the HP3, but run at higher power, with integrated copper plating for superior heat dissipation, allowing maximum brightness.

Fitment. All bulbs use a quality inject-molded 194/168 T10 terminal, with a full-size base connector and proper pin alignment, designed for exact replacement of your factory 194 bulb. Just remove the old bulb, and plug in the new LED.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.


These LEDs are available in crisp, bright colors including White, Warm White, Blue, Red, Amber, and Green.

 We strongly recommend white or warm white for license plate applications- the other colors are illegal in most areas. Please check your local laws before ordering.

Diode Dynamics offers several brightness options so you can choose what fits you best.  These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb:

SMD2: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
HP3: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright!
HP5: Nearly triple the brightness of stock OEM bulbs!

Lumens: BUYER BEWARE! Most sellers just provide "calculated" lumen numbers, based on the maximum potential brightness of the LED chips on the bulb. For example, if a bulb has five 10-lumen chips, they will rate it at 50 lumens. However, this is not accurate, as the design of an LED bulb does not get rid of heat fast enough to run the LEDs at maximum.

These "calculated" lumen ratings are much, much higher than the true, measured light output, so it will look like competitors' bulbs are brighter than ours. This is because Diode Dynamics does not provide inflated "calculated" numbers; we believe it is misleading. We test the actual brightness of the bulbs in our lab, to provide real lumen output measurements. Our measurements are accurate, but they are usually much lower than the misleading "calculated" figures. Please click here to learn more about LED brightness measurement.



LED Components. Diode Dynamics uses only the highest quality LED chips in the production of its bulbs. This means we use only brand-name suppliers such as Epistar, Cree, Osram, and Samsung.

While Diode Dynamics bulbs may look the same as others on the market, most copycat bulbs use economy-grade LED chips in order to reduce costs. This greatly reduces the reliability and overall brightness of the bulb when you compare it to Diode Dynamics.

Construction. Although LED technology allows for extremely long bulb life, the market is flooded with cheap LED bulbs that fail prematurely due to inferior construction. The worst enemy of LEDs is excessive heat, and when bulbs are not designed properly, they do not disperse heat as well, leading to premature failure.

Off-brand, cheap bulbs exhibit poor solder uniformity, high levels of flux in the solder, uneven chip placement, low-gauge terminal wires, poor assembly, and bulbs held together with inferior adhesives. At best, solder joints will crack and fail on low-quality LEDs after a few weeks of use. In the worst case, these bulbs can damage housings as the extra flux and adhesive evaporates and creates a residue on the lens of the housing.

Diode Dynamics bulbs are produced with modern, computerized equipment, and only the best materials, to ensure complete uniformity, high quality, and long bulb life.

All Diode Dynamics products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited replacement warranty. For more information, please view the Warranty Information page.

  1. Great product! Review by Lance

    Love the look of the white LED. (Posted on 10/3/17)

  2. Stage 2 Is The Way To Go Review by RubiconAlpha

    The Stage 2 bulbs are very bright and looks great with my LED headlights and turn signals up front. I went with the cool white HP5 (92 lm). Really lights up not only the license plate very well but even doubles as a puddle light at the back of your car. I choose the brightest bulb available as an added safety feature and this does light up the back of my car nicely. Thanks DD! (Posted on 6/24/17)

  3. Excellent Replacement Review by Bad Grandpa

    Plug and play for an excellent lighting upgrade. (Posted on 1/8/17)

  4. Great upgrade Review by Gurtej

    A cheap cost, high rewarding upgrade to your Dodge Challenger! The output of the light is really nice and clear. Much better than the stock look. Got myself the red colored ones and they give it that car show look! Would recommend all products from Diode Dynamics. (Posted on 9/5/16)

  5. Nice upgrade Review by Carlos

    I bought the hp5 bulbs for my 2014 Dodge Challenger and they're great. Looks more modern and visible now. (Posted on 8/15/16)

  6. They do not fit the 2016 Dodge Challenger Review by Eric P

    I bought these because they were listed as for the 2016 model. Upon arrival (which was fast) I went out to the car and pulled out the housing and quickly realized that dodge changed over to a seal LED unit of their own. Only problem with it is the clip that holds it is brittle and broke off. Now I have to go on Monday to the dealer and buy a new one. I'll keep the bulbs they shipped because of the high quality and I can probably use them somewhere else later (Posted on 7/9/16)

  7. Great! Review by Franco

    If your looking for great output and brightness go with the leaders
    DIODE don't settle for cheap and low quality flickering lights

  8. Great Product Review by Sean

    I initially bought the stage 1 LED Bulbs, and wasnt exactly what i wanted, so i contacted DD and without hassle they shipped my new Stage 2 LED bulbs in no time.

Customer Service was fantastic best service i have gotten from ordering a product online! recommend them to anyone, thank you DD!! (Posted on 4/2/15)

  11. Big difference from OEM Review by Rich

    Easy upgrade and Spot on results. I added stage 2 LEDs to the plate. Big difference from OEM. White, clean, crisp illumination. As stated in another review, comes as a two pack and only needed one on my '13 Challenger SXT+.
    Can't miss upgrade.
    Really like DD products! Haven't had a bad one yet and don't expect to. (Posted on 3/22/14)

  12. Perfect Quality Review by BlackenedSRT

    Great price, works like it should, and it's a cheap mod.. FYI I have a 2009 SRT Challenger.. and this comes in a pack of two and there's only one blub on the car. (Posted on 2/23/14)

  13. Great Quality and Ease of instal Review by C13RT

    I received these in a timely manner and with time, a Gerber tool and a flash light I was able to remove the license plate light cover, remove the stock halogen bulb and replace it with this quality led bulb. I went from a white color to a red light color and I love it. Thanks Diode Dynamics (Posted on 12/15/13)

  14. Even better than I thought it would be Review by Willy

    Once I figured out the way Dodge had the license plate light screwed in and guaranteed to make you curse the Gods of Mopar, it was very easy to install. Well, the light part was :) It looks awesome and is bright enough that I even have the blue light on the ground at the rear of the car. It looks awesome in person. DD is a great source.

Level of Difficulty: 1/10

Just unplug your factory bulb, and replace it with the new LED one. It is a direct replacement for your vehicle.

Accessing the bulb itself is quite easy. Usually, it is held in by two tabs, and you can pop it out from the outside of the vehicle. In some cases, you will need to remove a few screws, which are clearly visible. Finally, it may be held by clips from the inside, accessible when you open the hatch or trunk.

If it does not work the first time, try flipping it around in the socket, as all LEDs require the correct polarity.
