Sounds like the sensor in the column for the reverse lights has gone bad!! If you are sure that you have power going to the reverse lights at the rear of the vehicle

My reverse lights dont come on while in reverse and i dont need to have my foot on the break to shift out of park.

Yes it could be a relay, but it could also be two isolated problems. The shift will have a switch inside to send a signal either through a relay or directly to the reverse lights. I would suspect the switch. The switch itself may be good but it is not being depressed for some reason. The brake also has a switch. It may be working for the break light but not for lock out of the starter.

All fuses are good - brake lights, rear running lights work fine. but the reverse lights won't come on when put into reverse. Any idea what might be going on? As far as I know the bulbs are still good...

You will need to either replace or adjust your backup switch, it is located on the transmission next to the shifter. Hope this helps, thank you for using FixYa!

My 1993 Trooper's reverse lights don't work. I've checked all the fuses and changed the bulbs out but this was fruitless. Please help.

I had the same Problem with my 1994 Trooper. I was smoking (painting with translucent black paint) my taillights, and when i put the back in, the reverse lights didnt work. In a seemingly unrelated problem, my gearshift indicator strip on the dash would only stay in park. The solution is that there is a sensor that measures gear shift position on the transmission, that relays the power to the reverse lights when reverse is selected. This sensor turned out to be corroded through and the wires surrounding it had corroded from the inside out. I recently got that replaced, and the problem was solved.

Help please i need to find out quickly for a document whether my Peugeot 206 CC 1.6 S year 2002 has 1 reversing light or 2 ? sounds stupid but i stopped someone in the street to ask and she said i...

some markets (Europe) have one, balanced up on the other side by one fog guard light(so it dont look like brake lights in fog)some markets have two,but you can see the one working so check by turning on the rear fog guard light, if you have one then you only have one reversing light....

Reverse lights do not work, checked all fuses and the bulbs

Hi sorry to hear you're having problems

Most likely you have lost the connection at the transmission. Please when you do your next oil change just ask the technician to check and be sure the wires are on and tight at the reverse light switch.

Best of it please let me know if this helps.

Rear lights renault master

its more than likely the earth wires for the lights. unplug the lights and chec the connections visually for corrosion or burnt. the white wire on either side is the earth. get some electrical cleaner and spray the connections. should solve it
