Yes witch fuse and where can o locate it and the fact left rear lamp is burnt out would this cause number plate lights not to work


I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

these lights are not independently fused, so there is no fuse for them alone

it is possible that the issue at the other lamp could cause this, yes, as could another similar issue at the plate lamps

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
