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

I KNOW YOU HAVE AN ELECTRICAL SHORT.WAS AN ALARM INSTALLED OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ACCESSORY? CHECK WITH DODGE TO FIND OUT ABOUT A RECALL.IF SOMETHING WAS INSTALLED, TAKE IT BACK THERE TO STRAIGHTEN IT OUT IF NOT HAVE A AUTO TECHNICIAN CHECK IT FOR YOU.

SOURCE: no back up lights or license plate lights

First chk. all fuses and bulbs. There is a backup light switch under dash either on steering colume or someplace close. plate lights should be hooked in with running lights, If bulbs are ok chk for wire unhooked or bad ground. can't help on diagram.

NO. it uses the same fuse as the tail lights. If the tail lights are working th efuse is good. The bulb is most likely burned out.

Where is the fuse for the plate number light ford escape 2003


I have found that the cars with which I have experience use the same fuse for the license plate light as is used for the tail lights. Not sure why or if yours is different.
So, if the tail lights work and the license plate light doesn't, then the problem can usually be resolved by confirming that the wire is properly connected, cleaning the contacts and replacing the lamp.

Hi my license plate light is not working and I already looked at the fuse box, but there is no fuse for the lights


There is a fuse for the lights. If it is just the license plate light that is not working then most likely you have a burnt out bulb. It is tied into the "parking" lights/tail lights circuit.

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.

Nissan Sentra License Plate Light Not Working


the license plate because of its position gets a lot of dirt and water problems so i would go back and take another good look remove the bulbs again and see if you can clean the inside with a little sand paper or a little scrape with a small screwdriver then spray with a little sileacone oil replace bulbs.Then switch lights on they should be ok if not try moveing them slightly with your fingers they should light.please let me know how you get on.adrian
