License Plate Lights

I figured my license plate lights were burned out, so I replaced them today, They still don't work. I checked all the fuses...the cig lighter fuse was burned out...replaced it, still no plate lights. Did I miss a fuse?

It is mixed with another item.
The fuse is located under dash, drivers side.
It will be on the fuse that does your rear marker lights

Probably not... For some reason license plate light wiring and sockets are VERY prone to corrosion. Make sure to check the light sockets and try to get to the wiring close to them, your problem is more than likely very close to the lights.

2004 malibu. i have replaced license plate bulbs but they are still not working. can someone please tell me where their fuse is?

Sorry to say the license plate lights get power from the same circuit the parking lights do. So if the parking lights work, the license plate lights should have power too.

License plate light

The licence plate doesn't have a fuse, it comes on when you put your lights on, if you have your park lights on and the plate light isn't working then generally it's just a bulb, see what you can find, cheers good luck

I ran a small tire pump from the ciarette lighter, it pumped some then stopped.Now the cig lighter doesnt work. My neighbor offered to help . his car did the same thing. I checked the fuse under the dash...

Try replacing the fuse with another of the same size eg 10amp. While you are under there check other fuses. The label is not always correct on Australian Toyotas, could be the same in your country.
If the fuse is blown, there is a short in the pump. Throw it away as it has blown the fuses in both vehicles. (yours and the neighbors)
Next time you are at a spare parts supplier buy yourself a cheap (usually under $10.00) LED computer safe test light. These are easy to use. It has a earth lead with a clip on the end and a probe on the other end that you touch to the fuse and see if it lights up the LED bulb.
First you connect the earth lead to a good earth, the ignition key while in the ignition is usually a good earth or a bolt that goes into the vehciles body. (You need a good earth)
Then you just touch the probe end to one side of the fuse and see if it lights up. If not you touch the other end of the same fuse and it should light up.
If only one end is lighting up the testers bulb the fuse is broken. (Yes it can look fine but be still broken)
If both ends don't light up move the earth lead to a bolt on the vehicle and recheck also check other fuses to make sure your have a good earth.
Tip, Some fuses only work with the ignition turned on while other work all the time.
You can also check the cig lighter with the test light. after checking the fuse is Ok
Again find a good earth bolt and attach the earth lead and place probe end into centre of empty cig lighter and it should light up the bulb. Becareful to to touch the side at the same time as this is the earth for the cig lighter.
