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: License plate lights do not work.

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

SOURCE: Which 15A fuse do I pull to disable the license plate light?

The license plate light should be on the same circuit with the tail lights.

SOURCE: Back up lights and license plate light doesn't work.

Reverse lights are activated by a small switch on the transmission. Usually located on the passenger side of the vehicle with a small rubber cap over the switch, Your plate light bulbs are probably in need of replacement, and have nothing to do with the reverse lights.

Back up lights not working


Assuming it has automatic, 10A fuse 29 in the smart junction box supplies power to the reverse lamps relay. If the fuse is OK, the relay could have failed. Fuse 3 in the smart junction box may be open, causing the license plate lights to be off.

License plate light out of order


Get your hands on a manual......(OEM or Hanes, etc) either online or from someone who owns the same car. It's the only way to find the correct fuse to see if that's the problem.You could start by checking the color code of the wires to the light........then look for the same color back at the panel.....but that's a pain.Good luck, buddy!

Is there a fuse for the license plate light


the license light uses the same fuse as the tailights so it they work its not a fuse.check the bulb then check with a test light for power to the socket centre contact and check for a good ground connection buy connecting the test light to a good power source and touching the probe to the side of the socket.if it lights with both of these test then the bulb is no good.if it doesn`t light up you need to find the problem wether its powe supply or a bad ground.the power wire for the light is brown and you can locate it in the wire loom.

License plate light is out where do i look for a fuse or does it have a fuse or do i just change bulb


I don't know if that bulb has a dedicated fuse or shares one with the tail lamps (for example)
But if you remove the bulb, you can test it with a continuity meter.
If the bulb is NOK, replace it.
If it is OK, then there is possibly a bad connection in the socket or, as you suggest, blown fuse.
But I would expect a blown fuse also to have stopped other items working.
