Question about 2006 Ford Focus
I have a problem with the reversing light on my 06 focus st2. When I remove the bulb from the holder i get 11.3v at it, but the bulb will not come on. I removed the holder from the wiring and connected it to a battery with some wires to confirm the holder works with the bulb in it, it does and the bulb lights. Any ideas why the bulb will not come on when it is fitted would be appreciated? Thanks.

the switch is in fact the earth when you select reverse it gronds the wire, so to test take lead off and earth it, there will be a contant live to the bulb with the ignition on, if when earthed the light works the fault is with the switch, which could be an adjustment problem, or a defective switch. if does not work when earthed check the live to the bulb then check fuse

you can try to get another type of replacement, or you can cut the spade fitting off of the car harness and put on a pin connector and hook up the one you have, make sure you have the right pin connector, can be found on help isle at autozone

same as anyother car, if its not, some dipstick may have put in a nother dipstick that could be to short to read, best to find a car same type age engine size and make sure you have the correct dipstick

Probably sorted by now but in case anyone gets the same problem. Check all the red fuses in the main fuse box, not just the one the handbook says it should be. The main fuse box is behind the glove box...push in the sides and the gb will drop down....the fuse box is facing you.

SOURCE: replace the light for reversing
There are generally two bulbs, one on each side of the rear end, which light up when you put the car in reverse. Maybe both are bad? There is also a light switch attached to your gear shifter, may well be part of a larger switch unit which precludes you from engaging the starter unless you are in park or neutral. I would start by checking the bulbs, then ask a dealer to show you what the switch looks like and where it is located. If the back up lights flicker a bit as you jostle the shifter I would suspect the switch.

Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.
Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.
