Fuse 15 is for back up lamps this in the interior fuse panel, lic plate lite is not fused seperately, it is on same circuit as tail lights, so if they work then the bulb is burned out.

Depending on your make the fuse panel is in 1 of 3 places....

1. When you open the driver side/passenger side door theres a pannel you have to remove, It may or may not say Fuses

2. Under the dash on the driverside behind the foot pedals

3. Under the hood (drivers side)

also being all the lights that are malfunctioning are in the rear (breaklights, tail lights and LP lights) after you check your fuses if the problem is still there, check the ground cable from the tail lights, if it was pulled/severed/or rusted apart this will have the same symptoms

I just purchased a 1999 Dodge Avenger, the headlights are not coming on, the license plate light also..... All my other lights work, backlights, backup lights, blinkers (front and rear), hazards........


The headlight fuses are in the cabin. Not sure where, but start looking under the dash on driver sude. The box may have a cover.
else, look for a panel cover in the pillars. The licence plate light is probably burned out, as it runs on the same circuit as the running lights.

Liscense plate fuse location


Welcome to FixYa!

On the link below is the owners manual for the edge page 258 slot # 22.

If it is just the license plate light that is out I would check the bulbs. The reason why is that the license plate light is on the same cerict as the parking lights.

How to change liscense plate light? se model


hi, if your license plate bulb cover has no screw holes in it then the chances are its just pushed in it may be a very tight fit but should just pull out its usually held in by two plastic clips that lock once its pushed in so using a screw driver to lever the light cover off should get it off.

If you have a cover on the inside of the boot that covers the wires going to the number plate bulb you may be able to take this off and then be able to see how it comes off.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

I have no tail lights or liscence plate lights


Does the fuse have power in and out when a test light is used? This test would be run with the light switch on.
