    Tag lights dont work

    Need Help, I have a 2001 sts seville my tag lights went out then I replaced the bulbs and now thy dont come on at all. They do however Flash whenever I unlock the car with the remote, the relay is good heck I even replaced it and i also checked the wiring harrness all the way back to the fuse box. Does anyone have any other idea on what else could be worng with it.

    Check the wiring harness from the trunk lid lighting where it exits the left trunk hinge bracket - for chafe - and also check the harness ground at the left inner fenderwell ground point. You'll need to peel back the trunk liner carpet.

    Tag lights = those bulbs which illuminate the license tag. In his case, two #194 bulbs in the center top of the trunk lid lighting assembly.

    Thanks, but there is power going to the light bulbs but only when i use my remote to unlock the car and they just flash along with the rest of the car lights but thats it. They do not turn on whenever i turn on the lights

    I understand that... but try and see what kind of voltage is there if any when the lights are on because there may be a small amount of voltage and we can go from there
