Ford Taurus License Plate LEDs


License plate bulbs are used to illuminate the rear license plate on your vehicle. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescent, lighting up in a yellowish color.

Newer luxury cars use LED modules to illuminate the license plate with modern, cool white light. By changing your license plate bulbs to LED, you can easily add this luxury look to your Taurus!

The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb.

With low price and easy install, this is one of the best, easiest modifications you can do to improve how your Taurus looks at night.

Diode Dynamics offers several bulb options so you can choose what fits you best. These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb:

SMD1: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern color of LED. (16 lumens)
SMD2: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs. (24 lumens)
HP3: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright! (56 lumens)

Bulb Design

SMD1: Compact design, with one 5050-size Epistar SMD chip. Outputs at 180 degrees.

SMD2: Similarly compact design, with two 5050-size Epistar SMD chips, driven at high power for maximum effective brightness. Outputs at 180 degrees.

HP3: One high-power SMD under a diffusing lens for truly even output (no hotspots). Constant current design and air-cooled base for superior reliability. Features dual contact pins and nonpolar function for easy installation.


These bulbs are made up of a quality plastic connector to slide right into the plug, as well as high durability terminals. A load resistor is embedded to prevent blowing the LEDs from voltage surge, and a diode is implanted to protect the LEDs from reverse polarity. The LED is wired for 12V operation, the kind found on all vehicles.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS (to fit your Taurus).

All of our products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited warranty.

We will be launching a new site in January with updated listings and more information.

I added this listing to get things started

Feel free to give us a call if you have any questions about our products or vehicle fitment: (314) 205-3033

(Ford switched to festoon bulbs for license plates in 2010+ on the Mustang as well)

We are still updating the model year listings, but the 36mm festoon bulb options are located here on our site: 36mm Festoon - LED Bulbs - All Products

The SMF4 is one of our most popular replacements for the license plate location

Sorry I never posted an update, but I purchased the festoon bulbs for the SHO several months back, and I have been extremely pleased with them, they are priced right and work great. A great buy.
Sorry but I don't recall the bulb number that I ordered...
