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. License Plate LEDs for 2015 Chevy Colorado - Blue HP3 Review by LilBear

    Accents my Laser Blue 2015 Chevy Colorado 4WD CC SB Z71 just right. Easy to install. (Posted on 6/25/17)

  2. Very Tight Fit & Very Bright Review by JL

    Very tight fit in my 2015 Colorado license plate lamp sockets. Found the output of the HP3 in this application too bright since they made starbursts in my backup camera at night. Used black heat shrink around the lens to try and shroud/control the output. (Posted on 1/10/17)

  3. Great LEDs Review by Mark

    I have used other LEDs for other cars, but these lights are far better. Very easy to install and look ok awesome. I would highly recommend getting these lights if you want to brighten up your license plates. (Posted on 1/7/17)

  4. Great lights...easy install Review by Unclgreg

    Purchased these to continue the upgrade to LED from the factory bulbs in my 2015 Colorado. They couldn't have been easier to install, even though the first one didn't go into the socket. I tried the second bulb and it went fine. The first bulb was tried in the other side socket and went in as easily as the first one. Great improvement and a slick look for my Colorado..!! (Posted on 11/14/16)

  13. 2015 Chevy Colorado License Plate LED Review Review by Petz

    Purchased the 6000k HP3 bulbs for the license plate. Bulbs work great and I like the look at night. The only thing that worried me was bulb installation. It took more pressure than expected to seat the bulbs in the connection vs the dome or map lights. (Posted on 2/4/16)

  14. 2016 GMC Canyon Review by Joseph

    Product looks great and works great also. Fits 2016 GMC Canyons. (Posted on 2/4/16)

  15. Great Inexpensive Upgrade Review by Chad

    I went with the 6000k hp3 and it was more than enough to give it that crisp, modern appearance. (Posted on 1/24/16)

  16. Amazing clarity Review by Kevin

    I used the 6000k cool white lights, 24 lumens. The crisp color is amazing. It adds a very high end luxury car feel, like what you would expect OEM to be. Nothing over the top or outlandish, just a clean crisp light. (Posted on 12/15/15)

  17. Let there be Light! Review by Baybilly

    You can actually see my license plate now. I went with the 6000k and 92 lumen. Great light and really sets off the plate. More than happy with them. Looking to completely change out all my lamps on the exterior now that I see what difference they make. (Posted on 11/8/15)


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.
