Hi,you should have the original licence plate light wires, if these are a different colour from the ones on the new bumper you will have to splice the originals to the new ones use a test lamp/meter to test for the live feed and connect this to the red wires then connect the black wires and join these either to a good earth point or the other wire which should be ground.

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.

I have a license plate holder with light that I bought from a third party. I do not have a back bumper so I am using the existing lights wire to hook to the new license plate light. here is the problem:...


I would get a voltmeter, hold the black ground wire to the chassis, turn on the lights and touch the red hot wire from the voltmeter briefly to each one of your wires. which ever one of them gives you 12 volts is the one to attach to your new light unit. If there is no voltage on the other wire then it is most likely the ground to attach to the mounting hardware for your light. you can check that by using the voltmeter's ohms resistance function and seeing if it and the chassis are a dead short.

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.

Need to change rear bumper license plate bulbs in a 1991 F-250


push the light from inside your bumper to the outside. May have to tap with a hammer or wrench. New light will push in from the outside toward the inside. Reconnect the wire and you should be up and running!

Reverse lights and license plate light dont work


Try link below, may point you in right direction, but you'll have to scroll down & find what you need. Otherwise I'd start from bumper with test light & work my way back toward front harness, after all fuses, plugs etc been checked.
