Licensce Plate Lights

So I just noticed that my License plate lights do not come on with the lights... at all... so either they are burned out... or there is a fuse out... I checked my Haynes... but didn't find anything, does anyone know which number the fuse would be so I can check it?

This was gonna be my next mod, but I need the lights to actually work first! :p

The fuse is number 32, 10 amps I believe. I know with my wifes 04 ZTS had the same issue and it was just that the bulb had gone. It looked like it burned out all black and stuff. With your's being an 01 I'm guessing it's not the fuse. Just and FYI, those little cylinder like lights are a pain in the butt to replace!!!

If that is easier to replace than the light I would 100% agree! It took me like 1/2 an hour to replace one light. I have to say, domestics are supposed to be easier to work on and so far between that and the side marker lights...what were you thinking Ford??? It was so easy to get the side markers off of my Mitsubishi.

Lol, I agree with you on that! My Toyota, Man I love it! However, I love my Focus also.

Ok, so I can still get lights for the LP at oznium? Which ones do you suggest? I think they have been out for a while, because I don't look at the rear of my car often at all! Haha!

I used LED strips lol.

Honestly just a LED module or something and run power and ground like they are run currently jsut as easy and bright as hell.

Or buy a LED replacement off the web cheap.
