the lights in back are powered from the same fuses as he lights in front, with the exception of the brake light.

you have a problem with the rear lighting harness. whatever caused the problem with your license plate illuminator has wrecked your entire harness. this usually happens when someone lowers the bike or installs too big of tire on the rear without regard to clearance for the lighting harness.

you need to find out what happened to the harness and fix it or replace it.

THEN you need to undo whatever it was you did that wrecked the harness in the first place, or find a way to do it that will not destroy the harness when you ride the bike.

let me know if you need more help.
