2008 CLK Licence Plate Bulb / Fuse location amd Number

Hello terry. The lights are not powered by a fuse. They are powered by the rear Sam control unit that is part of the rear fuse box. Most times the housings corrode or terminals get weak and don't make contact or the wiring breaks from the trunk hinge area to the body. The harness bends a lot and the wiring breaks. So trace the wiring and see if you find broken wires. If not you need a scan tool to check and see if the rear lights can be activated. Most times if the license plate lights don't work then the brake light on the trunk won't work as well. So check that. Hope this information helps. Let me know if you need more info. I'll do what I can to help. Lou P. Please take a second and click the box and rate my service GOOD OR EXCELLENT SERVICE if you feel I have been helpful and please request me in the future.
