Honda Footwell Lighting kit... failed LED?

I fitted the Honda footwell lighting kit to my FN2 back at the end of 2007 and about 6 months ago i noticed that the driver's side LED was no longer lighting up whereas the passenger side still does.

Anyone have any ideas why this may have failed? I am assuming that both use the same fuse for the circuit, or maybe each has its own.

Wondered if anyone had any ideas before I rip apart the interior again!

Just fit my kit or wire this to the Honda LED, loads brighter and cheaper.

Haha well seeing as I already have the Honda one installed...

To be honest I prefer the subtle look of the kit I have, but on the drivers side, 0% light is a little too subtle

you dont have to have them as bright, you could cut the leds down to 3 or 6 or buy the remote dimmer. its all options and will be cheaper than replacing the Honda LED kit but the choice is yours.
