Went to autozone this morning and bought some CRC Electronic cleaner and the smallest wire brush they had...which wasn't really small but I did my best with it.
I disconnected the positive battery cable, sprayed and brushed several times, sprayed again and wiped off the excess with a paper towel. Then I reconnected the battery cable, turned on my lights, popped in one of the LED bulbs and nothing...
Theres like a small hole above the passenger side prongs where you see the black circle...IDK what the hell happened to these license plate lights. The car did come with a backup camera installed as you can see in the pics...maybe they fried something while messing around with the wires?
