Led bulbs

I have a 2015 ram 1500, I tried putting the Sylvania replacement led bulb and it did not work. What led bulbs can I use, what bulb can I use for the back up light also. Thanks. This is a great page.

Make sure you try the bulbs both directions. I work at advance auto parts and I have many people try to return bulbs that don't work. but the real problem is the contacts only go one way even though the bulb will go in both ways!

This is EXACTLY RIGHT . I found out with a set of the 6 watt RECON led backup bulbs - turned them around in the plugin slots and you need sunglasses to look at them .
