LED corner lights 2010 SHO

My LED corner lights are not currently working, I can't find a fuse description in the owners manual for these, What would they be called in the owners manual? Anyone know what fuse number it would be? I would imagine a fuse went out for both LED bars to be out... i know there is a chance they are burnt out since the SHO has almost 90K on it already. Any info is appreciated, I ALSO used the search feature and did not find any info.

A follow up on this post since nobody responded, I changed my oil today since it finally broke 40 degrees.. BOTH of my led lights just came unplugged? I plugged them back in and they work just fine. Thanks for the help on the situation.

Did they click when you pushed them in? Do you think they just didn't push them on all the way at the factory?

Yeah, I am thinking they weren't clicked in all the way, they are a SOB to get them to "click". I am just glad it was something simple. It has been so cold lately and I have been working out of town and haven't had a chance to jack the car up. I figured it was just a fuse or the plug(s).

The side running lamps on the side of the headlamps are also a pain to get at to change. I replaced the stock bulbs with LED bulbs and it was almost a 2 hour job to get at the bulbs to replace them....not easy to replace. Not sure it was worth the effort since you can't really tell them from regular bulbs...and FYI, the manual calls for these lights to be replaced with amber bulbs but the stock bulbs installed at manufacture are clear bulbs...in case you need or want to replace them. I would suggest using a clear or white bulb.

Why do they put out such very little light? I thought about putting in a 168 just to make them brighter

They LED's look about the same as a regular bulb...I believe it is because of the amber color of the side lens itself. They look fine, just not sure it was worth all the work to change to an LED but since I have them in I will leave them, but if I ever replace them, I will get a white LED, not amber like I have in now...I was following the manual when I purchased the replacement LED bulbs, and didn't feel like going through the hassle of returning the amber and getting white, since I didn't realize the OEM bulb was clear until I removed it to replace it with the LED...so I just went with what I had.
