Question about 2001 Jaguar S-Type

1 Answer

My license plate lights are not working. I have voltage at the trunk light (11.48 VDC), but not from the two license plate sockets when I turn the headlights on. I uncliped and removed the sockets in order to access direct voltage checks to the harness, and still no voltage. The fuse is good (#2 in boot fuse box according to the owners manual), and all rear lights operate like they should (back up, flashers, signal and brake). Is it possible that there are inline diodes for each light, or am I going about this the wrong way?

SOURCE: no instrument panel, tail or side lights

If the fuses are OK maybe there's a cut off between wires from fuses going to your load (panel lights, side lights); or try to check your power relay.

No ac no heat no power to the to or maybe from the dash control panel


There are 6 bolts that hold the rear trunk panel on the trunk itself: 4 behind the license plate on the outside of the trunk and two inside the trunk panel trim.
1. Remove the license place from the DeVille rear trunk panel.
2. Remove the 4 bolts located below the license plate.
3. Remove the trunk panel (felt) trim inside the trunk.
4. There is a small bolt on each side of inside trunk panel (4mm I believe). Remove them. Each will have a rubber washer on them so you'll know you are removing the correct bolt.
5. From the outside of the trunk, lift out the rear trunk panel. The license plate light (and reverse lights) are removed by turning the light assemblies counter clockwise.

Help how do i change the license plate bulb on my 2004 corolla?


I just replaced my 2 bulbs an hour ago in my garage.
1. Pry off all the clips that hold the liner. I used a cloth covered spatula, so
as not to chip the paint, to pull out the liner a little bit and used my
index and middle finger to pull back the clip and the liner, very slowly to
prevent breakage. When all the clips are off, the liner will fall, no need
to remove the emergency release handle.
2. Press the tiny release lock that hold the wires in the socket and pull
out the wires, carefully.
3. Turn the socket 1/4 the the left carefully, while putting a little pressure
upward, then the socket will release.
4. Pull the bulb staight out and replace it.
5. Reverse the procedure and voila! A ton of money saved!!!!!!
MVC.

How to replace license plate lights


    Follow the Steps on how to replace license plate light on your car.

    1. Open the trunk and locate the trunk liner retainer clips.Use the Phillips head screwdriver to loosen the center plastic screw of the retainer clip about 1/4 turn, just enough to raise the head of the screw from the base of the clip. Pull the screw up, and lift the clip out of the liner. Use a flathead screwdriver to help pry it out. Remove enough of the clips to allow access to the license plate light sockets. Pull the liner back.

    2. Remove the emergency trunk release handle by popping off the top cover of the handle. Use the needle nose pliers to gently squeeze the prongs on the shaft, while removing the handle.

    3. Unplug the wire harness from the license plate light bulb socket the release clip on the side of the outlet.Twist the license plate light bulb socket 1/4 turn counterclockwise, using the needle nose pliers again. Do not apply too much pressure to the pliers; you may damage the socket.

    4. Remove the bulb from the socket, and replace it with a new one.

    5. Replace the socket into the socket assembly, and plug the wire harness back in. Test the bulb by turning on the lights of the Corolla, then turn them off again.

    6. Replace the trunk emergency release handle, and replace the hood liner and the retainer clips. Remove the old bulb and tools, and close the trunk.

How do you replace license plate bulbs on 2002 hyundai elantra


open the trunk and on the inside of yout trunk lid you will see a gray plastic socket for each light.

push in and turn the socket counter clockwise. when you feel it come loose remove it from trunk lid.

if the black rubber ring does not come off with the socket pull it off and put it on the socket so you can see where to line up the holes when you re insert the socket.

pull out the old light bulb and insert the new one.

line up the notches on the socket with the holes on the trunk lid and re insert the socket.

push in and turn clockwise to lock into place.

note: be sure to wear gloves when doing this. there are screws coming through the inside of the trunk that hold the light cover onto the outside of the trunk. the points of these screws are on both sides of the socket that holds the light bulb. since these are older cars it is likely that these screws are rusty. wearing gloves will keep you from cutting your hand on a rusty screw if you happen to slip when trying to turn the socket.

How do I replace license light bulbs in my 1995


I have a 2002 which is a little different body style but it may be the same process. You have to take the back plastic section that holds the license plate loose from the car. There are bolts that are inside the trunk that hold the plastic panel on. Mine are in the trunk lid. If your plastic panel, license plate, etc. goes up with the trunk lid they are in the lid. You need deep type sockets to reach the nuts, at least mine does.
