If anything check the fuse. But it sounds like just a connection back by the bulbs. Move the bulbs around in the sockets, trace the wires looking for any frayed or broken wires, trace the wires back to a plugin, may just be a bad connection.

Thank I'll do that but I don't have the fuse diagram so I have no clue which one it is...

Fuse box is normally marked to what the fuses are. Look for fuse tail lights.

But thinking more on this if your tail lights are working, then there should be power running back for the license plate lights. I would think the problem is in the bulb sockets or back at a plugin, just corroded a bit enough not to make contact. Unplug and plug in plugins, lot of time it is just there.

I took the car to the shop and three of my wires were in half so now my truck button works as well, before that I had to open it with a key!
