Could this be because of the wiring trunk harnes(meaning part of the trunk cables are affiliated with the license plate lights?
The trunk wire harness supplies power to all of the electrical devices in the trunk lid, so yes, there are wires for the license plate lights in that harness.

First things first - have you checked to make sure the bulbs light up and the contacts are clean?

You may want to revisit your repair job in the near future; electrical tape has a tendency to unravel as the adhesive degrades.
