    Hi, The left numberplate light is not working, but the right one is fine. The bulb is sound and have checked the earth but that is good also, however there is no live on that side. I've tried to follow the cabling but it would involve stripping too much of the car down to track the problem. Am thinking of linking it in parrallel with the right side cable. Does anyone have any advice on this or a wiring diagram which may help me properly resolve the problem? Thanks!

    Not really sure of the answer to your problem TBH, have you tried taking a look at the wiring were it passes from the cabin to the boot on the hinge point. The wiring is very prone to breaking here and can cause some very strange electrical faults...
