Most likely its the bulb thats gone, cause the fuse for the license plate light is the same as the parking lights, the fuse is in the fuse compartment, properly labeled, not hard to spot, it will show amp rating as well, but im sure its your bulb, remove housing with phillips screw driver, remove bulb, replace, reverse assemble, off you go...
There's a couple pins that are stuck into rubber or plastic grommets.
You really do need to pull it staight back.... maybe a little more from the bottom for that first pin.
Here's a picture that shows the pins:
There should be 2 screws holding the lenses on for the hatch light, remove those and cover comes off. The plate lights, access them under the rear bumper, they twist and pull out, then just pull the bulb out the connector. The running board light, under board, which will take the light assembly out, or a small flat head screwdriver, pop the lens off the top of board.
Look for stainless steel clips above the lamp assembly in the support frame around the radiator and grill. Lift these clips straight up to allow the lamp to tilt forward letting you reach behind it to un-clip the pigtail and turn the retainer ring counter clockwise. Pull the bulb straight out the rear of the lamp assembly, keep bare fingers and dirt off the new bulb glass and reverse the order of dis-assembly.
You will find what looks like a circle indent in the boot lining approxiamately a hand width down from the boot lip. Carefully pry this open with a screw driver from the right side as it is hinged on the left side. Once you have this open you will need a 9 or 10mm socket (cant remember exactly) to take out one screw. With this out the light asembly is ready to pry off the body so carefully pull from the left side of the light assembly as the assembly has two lugs that slot into the body work on the right side. Be carefully to pull the total loght assembly away as you don't wont to break the lugs.
Once off, the rear of the light assembly has two plastic clips that you can take the back off thus exposing all the bulbs, replace the indicator and reverse the steps to place the light assembly back to the vehicle. Its easy after being done once, take your time as no parts really need to be forced. Cheers
