My Ride: 2001 BMW 325i
Wiring harness in trunk of 2001 BMW 325i-Need to identify the wire colors

Both License plate lights as well as both red stop lights on trunk lid stopped working.
I have repaired the wires that seemed to be either broken or bent & partially cracked, & that fixed the trunk relase & the interior trunk lights.
But I still, have these 4 lights out & dont see which wires are broken, so knowing the colors that go to both License plate lights as well as both red stop lights on trunk lid would help.
Also, any suggestion for identifying the breaks in the wires that are not obviously broken?
Also, could there be another cause for these lights to suddenly go out? If so, what might the cause be?

PS: If any of these bulbs ever need to be replaced, how do I get to the bulbs for the License plate lights and the red stop lights on trunk lid?

Thanks for your help!!!
