license lamp wiring

Ok, so I was trying to be progressive when I had my oil changed and was infomed that the only license plate light I have on the vehicle is burnt out. I have an 01 excursion and the 2nd light broke so I just pulled it with the socket still connected and left it hanging for a while. When I found out the second bulb is out I decded to try to install the new LED lights that I've had waiting. I cut the socket off the one side and I'm left with two wires. A black and brown. The new LED light I have has just a black and white wire. Once I cut the wires, I lost all of my lights on the back of the truck (parking, running lights). Brake lights are still working. How do I wire this light to make all of this right? I'm not sure what I've done. Thanks.
