Just find the hot lead to one of your brake light and use some scotch locks and a piece of wire to connect the two together. Problem solved and will take less than 15 minutes to do.

Tail lights work but why don't license plate lights?


The license plate lights have their own separate bulbs. If you are able to replace the bulbs, that may solve your problem. If not, you may have a loose or rusted connection to the plate bulbs only. If you are able to gain access, you may want to check the condition of the harness that supplies the power to the license plate portion. Good luck and have a great day.

Brake light and license plate lights won't work


All lights rely on a good connection between the globe base and the metal body of the car.
This is the cause of your problem.
You'll probably find rust in the globe holder stopping the globe from making a good connection.
You may have to replace the globe holders, but it will be worth trying to clean the rust back to bright steel.

Check the ground. Sounds like that is the problem. You may need to add an additional ground wire from the light to the frame somewhere.

How do I connect the license frame to the brake lights?


You'll need a test light and an assistant to push the brake pedal. Find the brake light socket, remove the bulb. Hook up a test light and check the contact in the light socket for power when the brake pedal is pushed down. The wire running to it that has power going to it for the brake light, this is the wire you will want to connect the red wire from the frame, you then need to find a good ground to the connect the black wire from the frame to.

Review this information and links:

- Accesories and Instructions

Instructions
1.) Determine a suitable location for mounting the circuit protected converter in an out of the way spot near the left tail lights in the trunk or on the frame rail, if mounted under the towing vehicle.
2.) Ground the white ground wire by placing the ring terminal under an existing screw attached to a clean metal surface or by drilling another 3/32" hole and using one of the self tapping screws provided.
3.) Disconnect the tow vehicle's negative (-) battery cable.
4.) Cut the in-line fuse holder loop wiring.
5.) Using a ring terminal (3/8 inch for top terminal or 1/2 inch for side terminal), attach an in-line fuse holder (with fuse removed) to the positive (+) terminal of the battery.
6.) Route black 12 gauge wire from the fuse holder to the converter passing under or through the vehicle.
Note: When passing the wire through sheet metal always go through an existing grommet, add a grommet or use silicone rubber to insulate the wire from the hole.
7.) Attach 12 gauge wire to the fuse holder with the yellow **** connector.
8.) Reconnect the tow vehicle (-) negative battery cable. Note: See tow vehicle owners manual for any special battery reconnection and instructions.
9.) Determine if the towing vehicle has a 2 wire or 3 wire system.

2 Wire System
  • Has same bulb for stop and turn signals.
  • Some vehicles have a separate bulb for stoplights but also have a combination bulb for turn and stop. These cars should be wired as 2 wire systems, using the wires going to the common bulbs.
  • Note: Attach the crimp on spade terminal provided to the red stop wire and ground it along with the white wire.

3 Wire System
  • Has amber turn signals, separate.
  • Has separate bulbs for stop and turn signals (both red).
  • Note: Attach red wire to tow vehicles brake light circuit.
10.) Using a circuit tester or volt ohm meter (VOM), determine which wire attached to the left taillight assembly is the left turn wire. Attach the units yellow left turn wire to this wire using one of the blue wire taps provided. Determine which wire is the taillight circuit and attach the module's brown tail / license wire to it with a wire tap. Determine which wire is the stop circuit and attach the module's red stop wire to it with a wire tap (for 3 wire systems only, see step 9).
11.) Route the units green right turn wire to the right side of the vehicle. Determine which wire is the right turn circuit and attach the green wire to it with a wire tap.
12.) Install the fuse into fuse holder and test the installation with a circuit light or trailer.
13.) Secure all loose wiring with cable ties.

Testing Procedure
With the ground wire connected and all of the other circuits attached, attach the ground lead of a circuit tester to the exposed ground terminal of the 4-flat end. Activate the tow vehicle left turn, right turn, tail and stop lights one at a time. Probe the three receptacles of the 4-flat end to confirm proper functions. If testing with a trailer, make the proper connections and do the same test as the circuit tester using the trailer lights. If a function on the trailer lights does not work properly, disconnect the trailer lights, turn functions on vehicle off and recheck function with the unit with a circuit tester. Then check the trailer wiring for potential circuit problems.

I hope help you with this (remember rated this help).

Good luck.
