I cant find the fuse for the rear licence plate light in my 2008bmw 535i


the license light uses the same fuse as the tail lights. if you have not license light then it may be the bulb or a bad wire for the light from where it branches of the tail light wire.

We have no running tail lights we have blinkers, hazards and brake lights on our 1993 dodge Dakota, we are told its a ground wire, we need to run ground wire and need a picture with instructions please we...


blinkers and stop lights are on the same circuit-tail lamps are on another circuit-i'm going to start from zero so please be patient-do the front park lamps come on with the headlamps-have you checked the fuses-have you checked at the rear lamps with a volt meter-take the rear bulb out and try in front if fronts working-as far as the ground at the rear there should be a screw in the frame where the ground should be and there should be a ground wire coming out of the harness in the area where the harness from the front plugs into the turn signal harnesses-otherwise-you can driill a small hole in the frame and one in the truck bed underneath and run a wire between them-the bed is not grounded by being bolted onto the truck-cheers Denny

Can't find fuse for tail lights. Not in cluster by steering wheel, not in cluster under hood.


the rear tail lights, license plate bulbs, and the front park lights are all fed off the same fuse. I show fuse one in the dash fuse block (15 amp). If the front amber park lights are working its not a fuse.

Are you sure the bulbs are good? Have you checked the connections in the harness?

I need to know where to find the license plate fuse on a 2000 Chevy Blazer. I replaced the bulbs but they still do not work.


They are on the same fuse as the parking lights. If they work, start looking for bad wiring, or corroded sockets

My brake lights work but the tail lights and license plate light don't work every time I turn on the fuse it blows I have a 1984 pontiac fiero.


Remove all bulbs on the tail lights and license plate circuit.
Replace fuse, turn on parking lamps- check if fuse blows without any lamps connected.
If it does, check for short circuit to ground on the taillight/license plate wiring.

If it doesn't blow, re-install one lamp at a time until all lights work. you may have a faulty lamp or lampsocket.

Lost dash lights and running lights


Check your lamp out senser,and if you have a trailer wire package, disconect it. if the problemn goes away do not hook up trailer wiring again. If lights do not work and you have looked at all fuses,under hood and in the passenger compartment with a test light have your lamp out sensor checked.
