License Plate Light Not Working

Hey guys, i have i an 03 G35 coupe and i'm having an issue with my license plate lights not working. I just recently bought led lights and tried them on both sides of the harness and no luck. I've also tested them with a multimeter while the headlights were on and still there's no power coming from the harness. Could it be that the fuse is blown?

Did you have lights with the OEM halogens?

FSM section LT page 142 has steps for troubleshooting the license plate light circuit.

Make sure your parking/license plate light fuse isnt popped on the IPDM. (If your parking lights work, then the fuse should be good).

Then inspect the plate light wiring harness behind the plate. U can follow it into the trunk if u need to.
