SOURCE: Tag light out. Replaced both bulbs.. still not

the license lights work off of the tail light fuse.check the sockets for power using a test light(make sure you have a good ground).if no power then check were the wires are under the truck behind the bumper and move back down the wire 4" or so until you get power on the license light wire.there is a plug connector for the license lights at the back that may have a poor or damaged connections.

2005 gmc sonoma. Tag light isnt working . I was going to check the fuse but cant find tag light listed on fuse diagram. What else would they call it so i can locate what fuse its on. And if its not fuse...


You can check the fuse, but the problem usually is the bulb or the socket contacts where the bulb plugs into.
Tag lights (license plate lights) are exposed to a lot of weather/road exposure and bumps/vibration, which shorten their life.

Rarely is a "tag light fuse" listed. The tag light is typically on a circuit with several other lights or accessories, and most commonly on the taillight circuit fuse, but not always.
Only a wiring diagram or a manual will be able to verify which circuit/fuse it is on, so you may have to check several fuses.

IF it turns out to be a blown fuse, your first step should then be to trace and identify the source of the electrical short (usually in wires by the tag light itself). Simply replacing a fuse is NOT a cure or a good 'repair'.

(As I write this, I have 2 tag lights out on my vehicle,, one which I verified is a blown bulb, and the other due to a badly corroded bulb socket)
Please rate via the helpful button if this helped answer your question, and please post back (via comments) when you discover the actual source of the problem.

In the instrument panel there's this yellow light of a car with flashes coming from the back while i'm driving


You have a bulb in the rear of your car that is blown. Try turning the car off then back on without pressing the brakes. If the light does not come on, press your brake pedal down and then check to see if the light appears again. If it doesn't, your brake lights are okay. Next turn your park/headlights on. If the light appears in the panel, you have a blown rear bulb. The light will come on if any of the rear bulbs are blown so you will have to visually check it while the lights are on to see which one is defective. It's best checked at night or right before sunset so you can easily see which bulb needs to be replaced.

My taillights and rear parking and tag lights dont work but the front parking lights do


Are your dash lights out also? The tail and dash lights are wired on the same circuit and share the same fuse.If your dash lights are working then check the tail light bulbs, I know that it is rare but I have been fooled more than once by both bulbs being blown.

Left drive lights not working


It sounds like a couple of blown bulbs. Open up the light fixture where the drive lights are found and replace the bulbs.
