Unhappy License Bulbs - idiot light

I recently changed out all the Old Yellow Lights to LED, everything was fine for a few months.

Then I got a (Idiot Warning on the Dash) Right License Plate Light Malfunction !) I checked it it was fine, so I switched it with the Left one then it showed that the - Left License Plate Light Malfunction !

So I switched it back then both showed Malfunctioned (the are working fine in reality, so I even changed them back to the Old bulbs) Still shows that Left & Right are Malfunctioning !!


I even Disconnected the Battery to see if that would reset it - No change ??



Does anyone know how to Clear this ??

You need a OBD2 plug and software. You can find it on eBay.
