probably because there is a bad Ground-clean the socket where the bulb goes & coat w/vasoline & if there is metal on the socket housig ,clean that.That is IF U have 12 volts going 2 the socket-the tag light work with the running lights.

It is very easy to change the license plate light on an Oldsmobile Aurora. All you need to do is remove the license plate and look above where the plate was. There are bolts that are holding the light in. Unscrew the bolts and then replace the light.

If your license plate light is out change the bulb in it, if you have taillights your fuse is good as the license plate light uses the same fuse as the taillights.

The license plate light and connected right above the plate on a 2002 Volkswagen Beetle. To replace it just unscrew the old light and mount the new bulb.

Added to that, and assuming that you're asking because your license plate light is out, and because the fuse is the same fuse for the tail lights, then the problem is not the fuse. It's the license plate light itself. === It should be the same fuse as the taillights.

Unscrew license plate and remove to expose light fixtures. Wedge light module away from holes. Replace them and return them to sockets.

The license plate light on a 1995 Olds Cutlass Supreme can be replaced by accessing the bulb through a hole in the bumper next to the license plate. A person may need to do this from underneath the vehicle.

Open your trunk and find the wires that go to the bulb over the license plate. Twist the base to remove the light.

The light is built into the bumper on that car. Just above the plate.

what is the number for the fuse to change the rear license plate light. and is it the fuse box under the back seat or under the hood? The plate light is protected by the parking/tail light circuit.
