Question about 2007 Honda CR-V

1 Answer

Honda CR-V 1998

I replaced the reversing light bulb, but it failed to come on when put into reverse gear. I also checked the fuse under the dash board by replacing with one of the spare fuses, still no light. Any ideas before I take it for an MOT next week which it will probably fail if it isn't fixed.

If this is a manual trans replace the reverse light switch on the transmission, if it is an auto replace the range selector switch on the transmission.

Stuck in park,power windows don't work,reverse lights don't work dash doesn't work. keeps blowing 10 amp fuse for reverse lights.changed brake pedal switch didn't help

of course changing a brake pedal switch will not help in a reversing light problem
they are two totally different circuits
check for a damaged wire at the reverse light switch or bulb holder for the reversing bulbs for a dead short
as for the rest check the IGN fuse under the bonnet

I have replaced reverse light bulb, however new bulb will not work. I have checked the bulb, the fuses and the wiring, any ideas why can't get it work. Also indicator on dash still present.

The reverse light switch is a mechanical device used to control operation of the vehicle reverse lights. The switch is designed to complete the circuit when reverse gear is selected allowing reverse light operation (manual transmission only).

1988 pathfinder no dash lights no revers lights no tail lights no gaiges

If they all stopped working at the same time then it is probably a fuse or possibly 2. Check your fuse panels in the dash and under the hood. The dash lights and gauges should be a fuse labeled instrument cluster or guages, it is probably blown. The other fuse to look for will be the tail light fuse. This is where I would begin.

Tail light out

Open the rear hatch. There are two screws towards the inside. Unscrew these and remove the housing.Turn the bulb holder 1/8 turn counterclockwise and pull out. Push in on the bulb and turn it counterclockwise, then pull the bulb out of the holder. Replacement is exact reverse of removal.

Reverse light problems

On the side of your transmission will be a switch with several wires coming out of it. This is your reverse switch that turns on your reverse lights and most likely needs to be replaced
