You need to find out why you're not getting power to the lights.

  1. Check fuses
  2. Check that the panel is reinstalled properly and grounded correctly
  3. Check the wiring to the bulbs is connected
  4. check the wiring from the lights switch is connected
If all other lighting works then it's likely that the connection to the rear panel lights is broken or disconnected, as these lights are on the same circuit as the rest of the lighting when lights are turned on.
Hop this helps.

Have you checked to see if you have power to the bulbs?A cheap test probe/light will tell you wether its a power supply issue or wether the problem is at the lights.Usualy your problem is simply blown bulb/s.Have you replaced it/them to check?Good luck with it and if you need more let me know

No ac no heat no power to the to or maybe from the dash control panel


There are 6 bolts that hold the rear trunk panel on the trunk itself: 4 behind the license plate on the outside of the trunk and two inside the trunk panel trim.
1. Remove the license place from the DeVille rear trunk panel.
2. Remove the 4 bolts located below the license plate.
3. Remove the trunk panel (felt) trim inside the trunk.
4. There is a small bolt on each side of inside trunk panel (4mm I believe). Remove them. Each will have a rubber washer on them so you'll know you are removing the correct bolt.
5. From the outside of the trunk, lift out the rear trunk panel. The license plate light (and reverse lights) are removed by turning the light assemblies counter clockwise.

Tag light is not working. is there a fuse that will get the light turned back on?


The fuse labeled REAR PARK LP 15A in the right instrument panel fuse box powers the rear park lamps, and the tag lamps. If your rear park lamps are working then you most likely need to replace the tag lamps (bulbs). Use the following procedure to replace the lamps.

To Remove:
  1. Remove the two mounting screws from the license plate lamp.
  2. Remove the license plate lamp from the rear bumper fascia.
  3. Remove the license plate lamp socket by turning it counterclockwise.
To Install:
  1. Install the license plate lamp socket by turning it clockwise.
  2. Position the license plate lamp to the rear bumper fascia.
  3. Install the license plate lamp mounting screws.

Replace license plate lights


Hi there,

Firstly, remove the four screws on the bottom of the license plate light assembly using a Phillips screwdriver. Then pull the license plate light cover out away from the rear of the car. Pull the bulb forward and pull it straight out of the wiring socket.

A press the new bulb into place until it is secure. Push the bulb and wiring assembly back up inside the light assembly and replace the license plate light cover. Replace the four screws that secure the light cover and tighten them with a Phillips screwdriver. Finally, turn on the lights to test the new bulb.

Hope this helps...
