Question about Cars & Trucks
My license plate lights aren't working after changing the bulbs, the wiring and bulbs, and checking fuse 22. what else can I check?
You didn't forget to pull the headlight switch to check them? That's odd, usually license plate lights are spliced in from the tail light circuit.
There may be a separate ground for the license lights-if so, should be right nearby the bulbs. Use a test light or voltmeter and make sure fuse 22 has power. You could also check the sockets for power. If you have power to the socket and new bulbs don't work, it would be a grounding problem.

SOURCE: License Plate Lights
Probably not... For some reason license plate light wiring and sockets are VERY prone to corrosion. Make sure to check the light sockets and try to get to the wiring close to them, your problem is more than likely very close to the lights.

It wouldn't be a fuse if that's the only light that's not working, I believe all of the parking lights are on the same fuse. It's most likely a bad ground or corrosion inside the socket where the bulb makes the electrical connection. So check the socket to make sure it has no corrosion, if it does, clean it up and apply some dielectric grease (available at any parts store) to prevent future corrosion, and check for a loose or broken ground wire.

Simple fix! OPen your trunk and look at the right side trunk hinge for a bundle of wires. Honda made the license plate wire a little too short and when you open your trunk it pulls on the wire a little until it disconnects. I'm pretty sure it a red/yellow wire but trace it to be sure. All I did was add a little length of wire between the two and haven't had a problem in over a year. BTW, the wires are wrapped in a ton of black tape. Hope this helps.
