So i ordered LED lights for my license plate and trunk lights and i replaced the bulb and it doesn't work so then i swapped back in the regular bulb and it didn't work still even though the bulb is perfectly fine. so i tested the voltage and got nothing so i am thinking it is the connector possibly? I am going to stop at advanced auto tonight see if i can fix it, i took the light housing out and can see a connector and was wondering if anyone else had this problem before?

i was replacing the bulb with an LED replacement but then realized it hadnt been working for awhile but i just looked and there is a connector right behind the left hand top corner of the license plate and it was unhooked so i have to take the bumper off and hook it back up because the socket works fine cuz i hooked it up to a 12 volt battery and it worked perfectly

I second the fuse or connector issue. Take a volt meter to the wires themselves, while your headlights are one and see if you get any voltage on the wires. That would rule out a lot.

the license plate bulb is in line with the parking lights so the fuse isnt blown and i used a voltage tester and snipped the bulb socket off and put it to a 12volt battery the socket works fine but i found there is a blue connector behind the top left of the license plate and it was unconnected

light bulb is fixed the pigtail connector inside of the bumper cover was unplugged so all i had to do was take the 4 pins out by the trunk to see inside the bumper and plugged them back together and used some electrical tape to prevent that from happening again...
