Question about 2004 Chevrolet Aveo
I have replaced the lamps with two new lamps and the license plate lights still won't work. All the other lights work like the side marker lights, tail lights and so on. I can't find the problem.
First of all i would get a 12- volt tested and turn the lights on take the new blub out and then test the sockets and no power test the wires behind the sockets if you have power then the sockets are bad or burn out replace if needed.

Remove license plate. Unscrew the screws on the underside of the bumper. Slide the lights back toward the trunk and then down through the opening. Unscrew bulb and replace with a new one.
Reverse steps to reinstall the lights.

It sounds like your ground for the license plate lights is bad. trace one of the wires back to grounding point and see if it is rusty or broken. Windstars are bad for this. Also remember that just because a ground may look good it might not be. If the point doesn't make a good ground to the chassis it could look grounded and possibly be grounded but not enough to carry the load of the light You'll need a meter to see for sure. if you put a meter from ground wire to a good ground (the frame and dig in a bit if possible )with the headlights on you may see the lights come on. This will tell you quickly if it is a bad ground.
Hope this helps!
