Hi Merido, If the fuse is blowing in the center try using a fuse with a higher rating. If the fuse is blowing towards the side, you have a short circuit. If the rear lights are working correctly the problem will be between the tail lamp wiring and the number plate. look for anywhere on the harness which may be rubbing against the body of the car. It should not be too dificult to find the fault and rectify it. Regards John

SOURCE: how to replace license plate bulbs on 2005 cadilac

To change the bulbs all you have to do is put a flat blade screw driver on the right side of the bulb housing and gently push to the left (towards the driver's side). This will release the catch holding it in and it will drop out and down on the end of its wiring connector. Twist the bulb counter clockwise to release it. Replace the bulb and just put the housing back into the opening left side first, then just push up on the right side till you hear a click.

If you place the flate blade of a screwdriver to the right side of the light(s) housing. And push gently to the left the catch will release and the unit will drop out of the trunk lid. Twist the bulb 1/4 turn and remove. Just reverse the process to complete.
Open the trunk to eye level to see to make it easier to see. Applies to all 02-05 Devilles

You have to pry underneath the outer left plastic edge of the light with a small precision flat screwdriver to hit the tab thing on the left inside and push towards the right, then pull light housing outwards. You can see the tab through the clear lens. if you have a license plate frame, you will need to remove that first.

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.
