Question about 1996 Nissan Altima

Open Question

Nissan Primera - License Plate bulbs won't come on.

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!

    If you have located the fuse door, there should be a printed schematic on the back of the door which will indicate which fuse protects which application. Owners manual should also indicate this and answer your question.

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.

Good luck,
Eitan.

SOURCE: License plate lights do not work.

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

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.

Where is the fuse for the license plate lights on a 05 Nissan Maxima lights not working all other lights work but license plate lights I can't see both lights blowing out at the same time


It is not on a separate fuse, either you have a bad connection or wire....or you need to replace both bulbs. I think I would start with bulbs and go from there.

2004 malibu. i have replaced license plate bulbs but they are still not working. can someone please tell me where their fuse is?


Sorry to say the license plate lights get power from the same circuit the parking lights do. So if the parking lights work, the license plate lights should have power too.

hi.
most cars run licence plate lamps on the same fuse as the tail lights.
if your tail lights work, then it is more likely to be a fault on the bulbs or bulb holders, or the wiring in that area, probably caused by the crash.

i would recheck this area first, using new bulbs to rule these out.

Not sure about this year, but you either remove the license plate, or else you get at it from the backside (inside the truck).

1996 ford explorer license plate fuse


I'm not to sure what one you did want license plate light or the tag light up high above your back door. I know I am reading license plate so I will say the fuse needs to be replaced. plate lamps need 2 light bulbs and the fuse box is under the steering wheel or under the hood there are 2.
in my book it said that it is a (194 trade number), I woulds change out bulbs and then fuse.
