I got light error and checked my lights. My right licence plate light not working when trunk is closed but when I open trunk is starting to work. I replaced the bulb nothing changed. Is some wiring bad?

Besides the wiring I had an E60 that was very sensitive to the quality of bulb. Once I switched to a dealer-bought bulb I stopped having sketchy behavior, believe it or not. But check the wiring too.

I had same issue and it was wiring harness. Previously the remote truck opener failed and same issue! I now open the trunk with key fob, but hold onto the lid as it opens to see if it helps prevent accelerated wear on wires!
