You probably figured this out by now, but in case you haven't... Reach up behind the rear bumper, rotate the bulb holder counterclockwise, then withdraw the holder from the housing and pull the bulb out. In some instances, the license light housing is held to the bumper with clips, and if you have a step on the bumper the housing is removed by pulling the housing upwards while pulling out at the bottom.

SOURCE: tag light replacement

Push the entire assembly back into the cargo area of the vehicle - it is clipped to the frame. (You may need to use the blade of a screwdriver to pry it loose).

Remove the electrical feed cover (red plastic) from the assembly by depressing the side clip.

Now, holding the asssembly in your hands, remove the lense cover top from the black bottom by depressing the side inserts.

Pull out the bulb, and replace.

Reassemble in the reverse manner.

The entire job should take no more than 3 to 4 minutes.

2005 gmc sonoma. Tag light isnt working . I was going to check the fuse but cant find tag light listed on fuse diagram. What else would they call it so i can locate what fuse its on. And if its not fuse...


You can check the fuse, but the problem usually is the bulb or the socket contacts where the bulb plugs into.
Tag lights (license plate lights) are exposed to a lot of weather/road exposure and bumps/vibration, which shorten their life.

Rarely is a "tag light fuse" listed. The tag light is typically on a circuit with several other lights or accessories, and most commonly on the taillight circuit fuse, but not always.
Only a wiring diagram or a manual will be able to verify which circuit/fuse it is on, so you may have to check several fuses.

IF it turns out to be a blown fuse, your first step should then be to trace and identify the source of the electrical short (usually in wires by the tag light itself). Simply replacing a fuse is NOT a cure or a good 'repair'.

(As I write this, I have 2 tag lights out on my vehicle,, one which I verified is a blown bulb, and the other due to a badly corroded bulb socket)
Please rate via the helpful button if this helped answer your question, and please post back (via comments) when you discover the actual source of the problem.

Tag light out, bulb replacement did not work.


Follow wiring back checking as you go- It is NOT a independent hot. I believe its just a corroded or shorted connection in line.

How to replace tag light


usually if it's outside access, there are 2 screws to remove the lens to access the bulb.

If it's inside access, look in the back side of the deck lid for hand access to the bulb socket

How to change the license tag light bulb on 2005 Deville Cadillac?


1- OPEN THE TRUNK LID
2-PUSH THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE BULB FRAME TO YOUR LEFT AND PULL DOWN. NOT THE CLEAR LENS BUT THE FRAME AROUND IT.
THE BULB ASSEMBLY WILL FALL OUT SO THAT YOU CAN EASILY REPLACE THE BULB.
3- CANT DO IT? THEN DO THIS. (BE CAREFUL)
TAKE A FLAT BLADED SCREWDRIVER AND PLACE IT BETWEEN THE CHROME AND THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE BULB FRAME AND DO STEP 2.
THIS DOES WORK I HAVE DONE IT (WITH THE SCREWDRIVER) ON BOTH LIGHT ASSEMBLIES.

How to change tag lights


I had to remove the entire light bar assy by taking every bolt loose to gain access to replace the tag bulbs on my 2000 Buick Lesabre. It is necessary to replace only one bulb so I replaced all bulbs with the new longer lasting bulbs...the bulbs are not expensive just impossible to gain access to them one at a time. It seems like GM made it so you would have to take it into the GM Dealer. A deep well socket makes the task muck easier! Hope this helps!
