How long does LEDs last?

I bought 9006 amber LEDs less than 6 months ago. One LED has already burnt out. Is this normal and i use them for DRL, so they are always on

Funny cause yesterday I realized my LEDs for the reverse lights are done. Bought these less than 6 months ago too from Diode Dynamics.

I went to your site, where i had ordered them from. This part 9006_HP8A doesnt exist anymore. I didnt see anything AMBER in color. Did you discontinue making them in that color?

I am upset that one of my LEDs already burnt out after 6 months of installation. It was working fine for a couple months after insallling it. Then it stopped working and i was going to say something, but it came back on for another couple months. Now it is off again. The other one is fully functional and havent had any issues. I did follow the trouble shooting through the warranty section.


Edit: I also noticed that you dont carry the 194 SMD5 and only available in white

I am no where near 40,000 hours. Have you had a lot of pre-mature burnouts on your LEDs?

It's very uncommon for LED failure to occur prematurely, but with any electronic component, they can be susceptible to heat or other outside factors.

Luckily, they are covered by our 3-year limited warranty. If you give us a call we can assist you with warranty replacements

Yes, i like the 3-year limited warranty and extended warranty after the 3 years. However, you dont have the amber LED anymore, which is what i am interested in...

Its in my foglight on my bumper. Would a lot of vibration cause pre-mature failure?
