Can LEDs go dim over time? One of things mentioned on mot was my passenger side wing mirror indicator doesn't work. But when I've looked closely, all 3 leds are lighting up, just nowhere near as bright as other side.

Checked the connector which seems fine, not sure what else I can check other than buy a new light at a rediculous price from honda

Hi, yes I've seen a few that seem very dim. You can buy replacement after market ones for around £20. Either ebay or elsewhere online.

Yeh I read that on here after posting so I've ordered an eBay one for 25 quid, hopefully it's the same colour as the OEM honda one.

I just can't get my head around what's actually happened, the lights are receiving voltage, and are apparently wired in series so if one led is knackered then they will all go off, but yet all 3 of mine are working, just very dim

Says to me that there's a resistor in there which has gone bad and causing too much resistance
