Interior Xenoen Light Problem!

I purchased the interior xenoen lights from Jlevi SW. All of the lights are great but I have 2 issues. 1, the voltage on the bulbs is 5w instead of the stock 6w kind of a bummer since they are essentially dimmer than the stock bulbs :/ . Still look great tho. Second Problem, My trunk Light isn't working I put my stock bulb back in but It doesn't work. I'll attach pics. Any Responses would be greatly appreciated!
CHEERS

If upon replacing your trunk light with the OEM bulb and it doesn't work, the fuse has most likely blown and you need a new one. Good thing is the dealer covers this under warranty. Check if your light housing has any damages though, i.e. melting or any kind of visible defects.

Yea I tried replacing it back with the stock bulb, and it didn't work. I suspected a blown fuse or possibly a damaged cable in the housing.

Hi Mohammad,

Just responded to your email. It could be a blown fuse for the license plate lights so check that first through the glove box.

don't worry, it's most likely the fuse. just take it to the dealer and they will 100% replace it for you.

Just don't ever buy these lights again,
