Tag light and trunk button

I recently got pulled over for my tag light being out. I replaced the bulb and changed out the socket and still no tag light. Iíve also noticed that trunk release button isnít working. Has anyone had to fix this issue yet.

common for the ground wire on the DS trunk hinge to break making the trunk release not work. IDK if that same circuit runs plate light.

the middle relay in the under dash fuse block is also for the trunk release. you can just swap it with one of the other two to test if that is it. all 3 relays are the same

I doubt it is the ground wire in the trunk G401 is the ground for fuel pump and trunk release .. the trunk has a connector at the driver side hinge .that connector//wiring is most likely mucked up .... use meter find the open ..that is C408.......feeds the trunk lid .. 194 lamp.

jcat and I are talking about the same thing. There are wires/connector on the DS trunk hinge. Check those and wire leading to them for a broken wire.
