Re my 2004 Volvo S80 AWD, 99,000 kilometers.
I noticed that the rear license plate light bulb was NOT illuminating.
Spent $7 on 2 new C5W bulbs (they only came in a pack of 2).

Lo and behold that did not light up either.

Check for corrosion sand paper down (only a little) contact in socket on left and right side of unit (2) replace unit. All right now.

Lesson learned save the $7 and use the good bulb on the left side of the plate as a test.
If that bulb works your removed bulb is U/S.
If it does not work, clean the corrosion. Reinsert old bulb.

Good for another 10 years now.
