2016 Limited Taillight LED Strip is Out

The drivers side hatch taillight is only illuminating by the two incandescent bubs. The taillight LED strip is not illuminating. In looking at the back of the assy it isn't obvious which connector provides power. Anybody familiar or have access to info on this hookup?
Tnx in advance Fred

The limited should not have any incandescent bulbs. Can you post a pic or diagram of what is not working? Is this a new car to you? On the limited the taillights form a C shape of the left side and the backwards C shape on the right side. The brake light are 3 (I think) led bulbs on the outside of each light. Now it's not exactly a C shape, but close enough.

There are 2 visible mini wedge 5W twist lock bulbs (we used to call them peanut bulbs) one to the left and one to the tight on the assy. One was out and I replaced it. You can see the spots where they shine thru. The reverse C is what is not working.

I suspect a connection problem because I can see a segment of the Leds going out but not the whole assy.

I will try to get pictures after dark as it's hard to see in daylight.

Tnx for the help!

So this is what limited taillights look like. What color is the light you're having an issue with?

I got your pm. I replied, but the short answer is that you'll have to get a new inner taillight. As far as I know those led lights are not serviceable..
