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

    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
