If not labeled in you manual then I would look for the fuse that is for the trailer harness. You may not have a hitch but I would bet you still have the harness.

SOURCE: burned out license plate bulb

open trunk,

remove felt liner from rear of trunk, (liner directly behind rear lights in side trunk) should be 4 plastic Phillips head screws. Loosing screws, then slowly peel liner away. You will see 3 nuts on each side, removing these nuts will loosing the rear light lenses, so you can pull the lense away from the body from the out side to gain access to the license plate bulbs. Re-install in reverse order. While in there I would recommend replacing your brake light and reverse light bulb. Hey your already in there might as well do a little preventive maintance.

SOURCE: i cannot find the fuse for the license plate light

The lic plate light are on the same fuse as the park lights so if they work the fuse is good, try removing the bulb assembly and look for things like a bad ground caused by dirt or rust, if you have a 12 volt test light you can check to see if you are getting any power to the light socket or the wires leading up to the sockets and you can trace back to where the problem is.

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

License plate lights arent working


You didn't forget to pull the headlight switch to check them? That's odd, usually license plate lights are spliced in from the tail light circuit.
There may be a separate ground for the license lights-if so, should be right nearby the bulbs. Use a test light or voltmeter and make sure fuse 22 has power. You could also check the sockets for power. If you have power to the socket and new bulbs don't work, it would be a grounding problem.

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!

Location of fuse box for license plate light on a 1998 chevy cargo van


The license plate bulb is fed off the same fuse as the parking lights/tail lights. If those a working than the fuse is good. Check the bulb. If its good check for power to the bulb and for a good ground. I think this has The license in the door? If so check the wiring in the door harness in between the door and the body. It is possible that there is a broken wire in that harness. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

I have a 1999 ford expedition the license plate lamps do not work, I need to know where the fuse is located and the number pf the fuse


Most likely its the bulb thats gone, cause the fuse for the license plate light is the same as the parking lights, the fuse is in the fuse compartment, properly labeled, not hard to spot, it will show amp rating as well, but im sure its your bulb, remove housing with phillips screw driver, remove bulb, replace, reverse assemble, off you go...
Good luck...

No lights for my license plate. Don't know if it is a fuse or bulb. Where is the fuse?


Typically the license plate light will come on with the running lights....if all the other lights are good I would suspect a bad bulb or trouble at the bulb holder....
Take care.
