09 Cobalt LT - Park, Dash & License Plate Light - Not Working

Hi everyone
I have a 2009 Chevy Colbalt LT
My son was driving it the other night & the dash lights, & rear lights went out on him.
The brake lights are still working ok!

Today I went out & checked the Park Light fuse under the hood and it looks fine (Even tho I noticed its a 10, not a 15 as I see on some of the photos i looked up) But it has been that way since 2010 when I bought it.

I checked the interior cluster fuse that is fine too.

I also noticed that the license plate bulb is also out! (I couldn't check it, as it was too dark & wet to hold my phone flashlight & try to pull the bulb too)

Any ideas what it could be?

Can a license plate bulb knock everything else out?

thanks for the help

If the fuse is good and you're not getting power to the bulbs, chances are you have a broken ground. I believe the tie point is under the driver's seat.
