    Make sure contacts are clean, make sure the bulbs are a tight fit and check to see if you have 12v

    Help number plate lights not working

    Hey bud, few of the guys have had the same problem (myself included). Are they OEM bulbs?

    Check for any errors on the cars systems, clear them, test with a meter & then plug in, see if work again.

    Is the boot handle/button working? The lights are on the same loom/plug. Might be worth checking the inside of the boot lid

    Could be that the rear wiper/wash has leaked and corroded or shorted the plug
