Could be a bad wire or corrosion in then plug were bulbs pops in anything electrical is a hassel check all connections if still not working you could have a garage look at it .if repair cost are too high you can always install your own light and a toogle switch to turn it on an off

Try checking your fuses, you may have a blown one. If the problem reoccurs, or it isn't the fuse, then you more than likely have a short somewhere, where you will need to spend up to several hours with a test light.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: Need to replace the bulb on 2000 grand am gt

You should be able to replace the bulb from the rear of the light from inside the engine compartment. I is a small bulb unlike the hole light as in older cars. You must pull the plug connector off the back of the bulb than un-clip the heavy wire spring retainer and pull the bulb back. Try to remember the position of the metal positioning tabs. It's not a bad idea to take it with you when you go to buy a replacement as well as the car info. The new bulb must be handled with extreme care. At no time can you touch the glass bulb part. The oils from you had will significantly reduce the bulbs life. Now just slide the bulb back into the hole noting that there are three tabs of different size to insure the proper position of the bulb to get the correct light pattern on the road. Good luck.

2004 Jeep Liberty left tail light, left front parking light, and license plate light not working. Replaced all bulbs and number 7 fuse. Any ideas?


sure, do you have 12vdc to the lamp, in park?
if not work to the source , the relay that the operates that.
alldata.com has the schematic.

fact 1, license plate feed runs off left park.
fact 2, the park relay feed both left and right park fuses and lamps.
so, fuse 7 is left, and fuse 9 is right.
did you only just look at the fuse, and proclaim, good.
or use a voltmeter? or use ohms to test fuse 7, oops
fuses that look good, can be bad. 0 ohms good, infinity is bad.

use volts, is there 12vdc on both sides if fuse 7,>?
yes, then fuse is good, parks turned on.
no, the output side of fuse 7 is 0v. so fuse is blown
if input is dead, the relay is bad, but how can it , if right works, answer.
it cant be bad.
so what is the voltage all the way from the fuse to the lamps.
id bet, (fuse good an voltage good at fuse 2 sides) that the line is open. cut wire, corroded connector.

the BCM turns the relay on, this part works.
so.... its just a break in this simple copper path.

use a voltmeter, it will not lie to you, trust it./

On a 2004 keep Grand Cherokee where is the fuse located for the license plate lights


Well its the same fuse that powers both tail lamps.
There is a lamp relay involved, but if the tail lamps work, the license lamps should also have power.

I have a 2001 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo that did not come with fog lights but has the plugs for the bulbs. I purchased the fog lights plugged them in but they didn't turn on. I was wondering if there...


If this vehicle came prewired, and all you had to do was plug in the fog lamps, then 50A fuse 7 in the power distribution center would be hot at all times, applying power to 15A fuse 24 and the fog lamp relay. Setting the left multifunction switch to FOG causes the body control module to close the fog lamp relay and turn on the fog lamps. It is possible your Jeep came prewired but without the fuses and relay so a dealer could install them to make your fog lamps work. You can check whether the fuses are in the box and OK and whether the fog lamp is installed or just an empty socket. Once everything has been checked and any missing parts installed, your fog lights should work.

My fog lights won't turn on Nissan sentra GEX 2002


There are several things that can cause your fog lamps to not work. The fog lamp circuits need to be diagnosed. Your entire fog lamp circuit can be tested at the plug for the fog lamp relay located n the relay box.

PIN 5 on the relay should have battery power at all times. This power comes from Fuse #43 (15 Amp) in the fuse and fusible link box in the engine compartment. If there is power at this pin, the fuse and the circuit between the fuse and the relay is good.

PIN 3 on the relay goes to the fog lamp bulbs. There should be continuity to ground through the bulbs on this pin. If you have continuity to ground, connecting a jumper wire between PIN 5 and PIN 3 should make the fog lamps come on unless there is a short circuit to ground, which will cause Fuse #43 to blow. If there is no continuity to ground on this pin, the problem is either that BOTH fog lamp bulbs are burned out or there is a break in the wire between the relay and the bulbs.

PIN 1 Is the battery power for the primary coil in the relay. This power comes from the headlamp switch and power is only supposed to be present here when the headlamps are on and the dimmer switch is on LOW BEAM. If power is not present at this pin, the problem is a bad headlamp switch or an open circuit between the headlamp switch and the relay.

PIN 2 Is the control circuit for the primary relay coil. The control circuit should have continuity to ground when the fog lamp switch is set to the ON position. If there is no continuity to ground with the fog lamp switch on, the problem is a faulty fog lamp switch, an open between the relay and the fog lamp switch, or an open between the fog lamp switch and ground E37 (right front of engine compartment) and ground F7 (left rear of engine compartment) Please note: This circuit has redundant grounds....if one ground is not making good contact, the other ground can still make the circuit work.

PIN 4 on the relay is not used.

If all of the circuits/pins are working as described above, replace the relay.

That is pretty much it... That is all you really need to know to get your fog lamp circuits diagnosed. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Tag light is not working. is there a fuse that will get the light turned back on?


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.

To Remove:
  1. Remove the two mounting screws from the license plate lamp.
  2. Remove the license plate lamp from the rear bumper fascia.
  3. Remove the license plate lamp socket by turning it counterclockwise.
To Install:
  1. Install the license plate lamp socket by turning it clockwise.
  2. Position the license plate lamp to the rear bumper fascia.
  3. Install the license plate lamp mounting screws.
