I thought my plate lights were burned out so I replaced them with new.
However after replacing, neither light worked. I checked the fuses but
couldn’t find one labeled for these lights. Any ideas would help.

The license plate lamps are on the tail light circuit. First thing
is to make sure that the rest of the tail lights still work if you are
even thinking about driving at night.

You didn't mention what model or body style of car you have, so I
have to give a generic response...

If the license plate is mounted on the trunk or hatch lid, the
"Usual Suspect" is where the wires go through the rubber hose by the
hinges - the wires flex and break going around the bends, or they get
snagged in the hinge and pinched.

Or the plug connector from the hatch harness to the main car wiring
harness comes loose right there.
