License Plate lights won't work

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.

    Tested the connector prior to the lights no power detected. Found out what the wire color was and traced it back to the connector near the trunk hinge. Broken wire. Soldered it back and works fine now.

    I had the same problem, thanks for the help it worked just like you said

    Same problem on my 2005 Aveo...I wonder if this might be a design defect. Looking at the way the connector is installed, any fix is going to be a temp one.

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.

SOURCE: license plate bulb needs replacing

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!

License plate lights do not work.


Sounds like you may have a wiring issue. I would cut the wires at the tag lamps, leaving enough to splice in new ones. Then pull one of your tail light assemblies out and, using a test light which is available from most parts stores for $5-10, figure out which wire is hot with the parking lights on. Splice a wire from there to your tag lamp socket. Then splice the other wire to the ground circuit at the tail lamp or find a good ground to wrap it around somewhere else (usually just about anything metal). Just find a bolt somewhere, back it out a bit and stick some of the stripped wire behind it at tighten it back up.

License plate light replacement


The license plate lights are in the ledge above the license plate. 2 screws keep the lens cover in place. Remove the screws, and the cover comes off. Just pull the lamp out (wedge base) and replace.
