My tech replaced my footwell bulbs with Canvas LED bulbs and the lights dont turn on. When he switched back to the old bulbs, they dont turn on either. One would assume a fuse is blown somewhere, but I dont know where to suggest to look. Does anyone have any experience with this?

Very very likely the fuse. I would check them all. Mine blew as soon as I touched those lights.

Front fuse box is behind the passenger footwell kick panel. Just remove the floor mat and twist screws on the panel.

Footwell fuse I think is a 3amp in the passenger floor fuse panel.

Doesn't sound like much of a tech.

It's a lightbulb. Not really advanced technology.

So pretty much lotus designed the bracket that holds the footwell lights with a metal bracket so what happens is when you drop the light it shorts out n pops the fuse.

Also, keep in mind some LEDs are polarity dependant so if it doesn't work one direction, reverse the bulb.
