06 Citroen Relay.number plate lights do not work tried new bulbs still not working.Advise? advise is Tailgate wiring issues could cause that.Is a common fault? repair? Does wiring loom need replacing?

hi Richard
yes wiring could be the problem but your wiring loom should not need replacing may only need repair, check your lic. plate bulb socket for power with the running lights on / check wire from bulb to left/right side for cracks in the insulation of the wire (looking for any shorts)
the lic. plate lights get power from the tail lights (running lights) if your running lights are not working also u may have a blown fuse
if not look for a brake/cut in the wire going from the tail lights to
lic. plate light sockets.

Turn the bulbs round and insert they are + and - and need to be the right way round. If that does not work check the wiring for loose or rusted connectors and also check the fuse hasnt blown.

My rear license plate light is out, is there a fuse that I have to replace or reor is it the light bulb? If it is the fuse,where would I find it?

I have a 2003 Deville and both of my license plate bulbs were out. Chances are its not a fuse and you will probably NOT find ghe replacement at a autoparts store. The book used that offers the 'replacement numbers' states a 'PC195' which no one carried because the replacement not only requires you to replace the actual bulb, but the setting as well (actual bulb socket-which is nothing more then a blue plastic piece where the bulb actually seats). Its a horrible design. To replace the bulb you need to gently remove the entire light assembly from each side above the plate. You may have to actually take your license plate off to do this. Once you remove the entire assemble there will be a retainer clip with a harness running into the assembly, just unclip the 2 wire harness - repeat for the other side. CHANCES ARE WHEN YOU GO TO REMOVE THE BULB YOU'LL TAKE IT OUT IN PIECES as it will break up in your hand. The part you just removed you will see a blue dime size fitting that is required for ghe bulb to work - when you get your replacement (most likely from a Cadillac Or GM dealer) you will get the new bulb seating in the connector. The AC DELCO part number is 25085970 and you'll pay about $11 each. Be careful when removing the old bulb and handling as there are 2 metal pieces laid into the assembly and if they pop out you'll be looking for more parts Any questions send me a email: carjockey71@gmail, dont forget DO NOT TOUCH THE NEW BULB and use a little of the common bulb grease. The number on the actual bulb assembly is PC168 as read off the needed 'socket'. Installation is the reverse of removal. Best of luck, Paul.

Bulb on license plate is out and cruise control. 2004 cavalier

The two problems should not be related to one another. The the fuses for the park lights and the cruise control. The license plate bulb is wired along with the rest of your park lights. If the rest of the park lights are working then check for power and ground at the bulb holder. If you have both there, check the bulb and the fit again. If no power or ground is there you will have to trace the wires. If the fuse is not blown to the cruise control, more information is required to trouble shoot any further.

Hi, i have a 206HDI 51 plate and for some reason my brake lights (O/S N/S and tailgate)have stopped working. i've changed fuses but still no joy, bulbs also seem to be ok. All the other light are working...

Check the brake switch, located on the break pedal. Connect the 2 wires together and if the break lights work, a new switch is required.(if only 1 wire connect to frame/chassis)
