Help! Brake lights and license plate lights busted

I was installing new LED's for my number plate lights and all of a sudden my rear lights and number plate lights went out. They don't turn on at all when I have my headlights on. Basically only my headlights are on. Help

Sounds like you've blown a fuse/s. were the lights switched on when installing the led's ? Don't know if number plate lights are fused sepaertely to sidelights or not. have a look in hand book for fuse locations.

No

Fuse puller tool in the under bonnet fusebox. Then you just need to be a bit of a contortionist to see the under dash fuses.

Eco display
if you can change a bulb I am sure you can handle a fuse!
