Question about 1990 Nissan Pathfinder
The bulb is most likely burned out. there are a few types of license plate lights out there. some where you have to replace the whoel unit and some that have replaceable bulbs. both you can find at your local parts store.

The first thing to look for is a blown fuse. Have a look at the Owners manual to locate the fuse box, usually it has a diagram to tell you which system uses which fuse. For a license plate light it normally shares a fuse with the front parking lights...are they working normally?
Have a look at the fuse box first....and the bulb! : )

The licence plate lights are in the same line as your tail light wiring assembly. I assume your tail lights are working or you would have got a ticket for that. The wire is either cut, broken or unhooked from the tail light wires (which usually are brown). If you can not find the problem, you can always run a new wire to the tail light wire from your licence plate wire. Then they should work.
Your other problem is that the license plate ground is rusty & not grounding, which would also not let them work, so you should probably check that first. Rick
