Re: how to replace the license plate blub
Open the trunk and remove the back panel in the trunk could be a couple of clips or a few screws holding the panel on one you remove the panel you should have easy access to the bulb just twist and remove. or on some avalons you need to pry the lens off the light to replace it then the lens will click back into place with a little push

A single standard equipment rear license plate lamp unit is integral to the
license plate mounting bracket just below the left rear lamp unit on vehicles manufactured for domestic
markets. A bracket with two rear license plate lamps is located on the rear bumper directly below the
spare tire on vehicles manufactured for export markets.

1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
2. Remove the license plate from the rear license plate bracket.

your going to remove the entire trunk lid assembly from the vehicle. If you open the trunk and look from the inside you should either see black plastic wing nuts or 10mm nuts holding the assembly to the trunk. There will be approximately 10 of them that will need to be removed. Once they are removed the lens assembly will pop away from the trunk lid. The license bulbs can then be replaced. I usually replace all six taillight/license bulbs whenever I have one of these apart. Its the same bulb for all six lights.
The fuse box should be located by your right leg near the bottom of the dashboard. There should be an access panel that un clips and allows you to access all the fuses for the interior and exterior lighting.
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.
Remove the two mounting screws from the license plate lamp.
Remove the license plate lamp from the rear bumper fascia.
Remove the license plate lamp socket by turning it counterclockwise.
Install the license plate lamp socket by turning it clockwise.
Position the license plate lamp to the rear bumper fascia.
First look under when your license plate lights are and you will see 2 phllips headed screws remove those screws and the license plate light assembly will drop out of the bottom of the trunk, simply twist the blub to unlock it from the light housing pull the bulb straight out of the socket replace it with a new bulb and the installation is the reverse of the removal.
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.
