Do you have LED's?? If you do make sure your resistors are working and didnt burn out or something otherwise

Yes, the license plate light WILL set off the dash indicator.

JUST FIX IT..... WOO HOO> My left and right Indication lights been o for two months... never thought of looking into the license plate bulbs. They were BOTH bad. .... So Long story short, if both sides come on, test all your brake,running and blinkers/reverse lights.....if they work, CHECK your license plate bulbs.... THANKS for all the advice.
