Dash light is out, need solution!!

So one of the dash lights on my 03 went out a couple weeks ago, decided then that i was going to change the color of the lights so i bought new LED's. Changed them out today figuring it would fix the problem. Installed the new lights and put it back together and the same light is out. I tried a different LED in that slot figuring maybe coincidentally i got a bad bulb but it still didn't work.

It cant be a fuse if its just one light socket right? I sorta looked over the back of the dash panel but everything seems fine???

Check the connector for that bulb, also check the wire for breaks and such.

I believe LEDs are polarity sensitive. Flip the bulb around.

You can also take a volt meter and check to make sure you are getting 12V to the socket.
