2009 - License plate lights not working?

I wanted to know if there is a fuse to check for my lights around my license plate not lighting up when lights are on? If so which one and is it good practice to change bulbs as well?

@Lisagr8Oregon welcome to the forum!

There are 2 light bulbs in the license plate light. Are the tail lights lighting?

@Lisagr8Oregon the license plate lights & the tail lights are on the same fuse. If the tail lights are lighting, then that points you to the license plate light bulbs being burnt out.

There are 2 bulbs in there, so my first thought was the fuse, but it's possible both have burnt out? Always the possiblities of other issues, but you won't know until you check the light bulbs...
