Start with the obvious check the fuse in the dashboard if thats fine i would say pull the bulb out again and try putting a test light to it and see if its even getting power if not it probably a short in the wiring

You didn't forget to pull the headlight switch to check them? That's odd, usually license plate lights are spliced in from the tail light circuit. There may be a separate ground for the license lights-if so, should be right nearby the bulbs. Use a test light or voltmeter and make sure fuse 22 has power. You could also check the sockets for power. If you have power to the socket and new bulbs don't work, it would be a grounding problem.
Get your hands on a manual......(OEM or Hanes, etc) either online or from someone who owns the same car. It's the only way to find the correct fuse to see if that's the problem.You could start by checking the color code of the wires to the light........then look for the same color back at the panel.....but that's a pain.Good luck, buddy!
First look under when your license plate lights are and you will see 2 phllips headed screws remove those screws and the license plate light assembly will drop out of the bottom of the trunk, simply twist the blub to unlock it from the light housing pull the bulb straight out of the socket replace it with a new bulb and the installation is the reverse of the removal.
YOU HAVE TO OPEN THE TRUNK LID REMOVE THE BLACK PLASTIC COVER FOR THE TRUNK LID LATCH.REMOVE THE LICENSE PLATE LIGHT HOUSING FROM THE TRUNK LID.REMOVE THE BULB SOCKET FROM THE LICENSE PLATE LIGHT HOUSING.TO REMOVE BULB FROM THE SOCKET SIMPLY PULL IT STRAIGHT OUT OF THE SOCKET.
