License plate lights

So I have this issue and I can't find anything online or in the forums about it. I have LED Sylviana license plate bulbs and they have been working just fine until today. My driver's side bulb is glowing at a much lower brightness level as the passenger side. Any ideas as far as how to fix this? Again, the bulbs are both working but the brightness level is much less than that of the passenger's side.

I have LED light for license plate but it's hand made by myself so I don't know about your "Sylviana" LED but mostly LED light design as module type meaning it take many pcs of LED unit to join together maybe series or parallel or both connection so I guess it just causing some pcs of LED burned to increasing internal resistor make electric current low so oull low the LED light.

Sorry for my English and hope this could help.
