SOURCE: how do i change the light bulbs that illuminate the license plate?

If the car is a hatch back, there is a access panel in the middle of the interior panel, you should be able to access them from there, its a tight squeeze. If its just a four door you can access them from inside the trunk.

Well, let's take this in seperate parts.
On the licenseplate lights, there is only one wiring lead that goes down there. Comes in on the right side, and jumps over to the left. But they are seperate from the tail lights.
The wiring harness for the tail lights comes down the left side of the truck, and then Y's off at the back to go to either side.

And you have replaced the bulbs or at least swaped the bulbs from side to side (just because a bulb is new, doesn't mean it's good) to test what is good, and what isn't.

Brake/running light bulbs will fit into the socket either way, but they only work if they are in the correct way. (you might want to try turning the bulb around in the socket).

From there, get a 12v circuit tester, and check the power to the sockets. You also want to test the ground to the socket.
This is a 8yr old truck, and there is a chance that 1) the socket is bad 2) there was damage to the wiring that goes to the tail light 3) both of the above.
Once you establish power and ground, then you start looking for unusual things.

Try the tips mentioned, and let me know what you find.

SOURCE: license's plate light stopped working even with new bulb.

It wouldn't be a fuse if that's the only light that's not working, I believe all of the parking lights are on the same fuse. It's most likely a bad ground or corrosion inside the socket where the bulb makes the electrical connection. So check the socket to make sure it has no corrosion, if it does, clean it up and apply some dielectric grease (available at any parts store) to prevent future corrosion, and check for a loose or broken ground wire.

SOURCE: Access to license plate bulb is difficult

Go to www.hmaservice.com and register( Vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you have access to shop manuals, service bulletins, wiring diagrams, etc. about your vehicle... You'll need a small screwdriver

I cant find the fuse for the rear licence plate light in my 2008bmw 535i


the license light uses the same fuse as the tail lights. if you have not license light then it may be the bulb or a bad wire for the light from where it branches of the tail light wire.

In a 1997 pickup parking lights not working and license plate light not working.Checked all fuses and are ok .Is there something else I can check.bulbs ok


Sounds like a faulty terminal inside the connector for the tail lights. Start from the rear under truck and inspect the connectors by disconnecting them.

License plate lights do not work. Bulbs changed still does not work. The right brake light does not work. Changed bulb and plug. Turning signals work, tail lights work. All works on the left side.


Well for the license plat you might wanna check the fuse. and the brake light if one works fine then I'm sure you need a new bulb in the other side. Good luck

1965 ford mustang...rear turn signals, rear emerg flashers & brake lights not working.


Are the rear bulbs OK?
Is the ground good at the rear?are the sockets good?
Are there tail lights and a license plate light?then the ground is OK.
All the things that you say do not work go through the signal light switch....it may need replacing.
First make sure the bulbs and fuses are OK and power is getting to the signal light switch and to the brake light switch.
Nice car!

Tail lights don't work, but brake, flash and hazzard work.


generally when the fuse is ok and the bulb is ok the problem is corrosion of the ground wire and connection to the frame, or corrosion in the bulb sockets. for starters go to any auto parts store and get an aerosol can of contact cleaner especially for auto bulbs and connections.

2001 dodge neon tail lights inop


looking at your schematics and , you say tail lights don't work , you didn't mention if front parking lights and license plate lights are working , they all come from the same source , a black /yellow wire , a good clue if front work and rear don't , please advise .if fronts work then you have a open circuit somewhere between junction S118 (near breakout for left headlamp) and rear sockets.
