Question about 1996 Nissan Altima
Hi All. Could you please tell me which fuse is associated with the license plate lights in a 1996 Nissan Primera Sedan? I have checked all the fuses and they seem fine. The licene plate bulbs are not going and it's daytime here - could it be because of a daylight switch/sensor? The bulbs were just replaced and the old ones are fine. Thanks!
There's no need to take the whole back panel off to do it, the light cover on the bulb twists out, and it might take some elbow grease to twist it, then the bulb is easy to change.

The licence plate lights are in the same line as your tail light wiring assembly. I assume your tail lights are working or you would have got a ticket for that. The wire is either cut, broken or unhooked from the tail light wires (which usually are brown). If you can not find the problem, you can always run a new wire to the tail light wire from your licence plate wire. Then they should work.
Your other problem is that the license plate ground is rusty & not grounding, which would also not let them work, so you should probably check that first. Rick

the light can be replaced from the back side of the light housing . go under the back side of bumper under the truck behind lisence plate you will see the where the wire goes to the light . grab the housing not the wires and twist about a half a turn and pull gently. it should come out and then remove the light bulb and replace with new

First off, you have to remove the truck lid liner to a point where you can access the light plug from inside (The light cover will not come out without taking the socket and bulb out first). Twist the light plug and pull out. Then on the exterior of the light, take a small regular screwdriver and slide it in the slots on each side of the light cover assembly and push towards the center of the light. This will release the plastic clips and allow you to pull down on the light cover. Do this to each side, then pull down and out towards you to get the light cover off. Install in reverse.
