    hi Thanks for the advice Where is the reverse lamp switch? I went under the car but could not locate it.Is it accessed from within the car? Attached to the gear change lever? THANKS

    hi again I think i have located the reversing switch on the gearbox in the engine bay next the lever for the gear change.There is power in the red wire/blue tracer when i turn on the ignition and move thru all the gears including reverse-shouldn't the power cut off when i change gears? The white/black tracer wire is well grounded . I have traced the red/black tracer from the sockets pretty much to the fronts of the car to what i think is the car 'computer" and there is no power in this wire - all fuses seem to be intact. The air cond has also packed up around the same time, all the lights on the air cond switches work , the engine speed increases slightly when the air cond is turned on but the compressor does not turn over Is there any link between these two?Many thanks

    Back trace for power, from the sockets back, with a test lamp. Look for the RED with a BLACK tracer wire. This is the power feed for the reverse lamps. Also, check the reverse lamp switch on the transmission. You should have power, with the key ON, in the RED with a BLUE tracer wire. In reverse, the power should flow thru the switch, and power the above-mentioned red w/black tracer wire. Also, make sure that the WHITE with BLACK tracer wires are all grounded properly.

    Please advise of your findings. Thanks.

2004 Ford Excursion, rear right turn signal socket no power, front signal blinks faster. Replaced bulb, turn signal relay but still no power to rear socket. Any ideas?

i don't know. blinker slows to normal when both bulbs work. using volt meter or similar, test rear socket for a
continuity to ground. if OK test socket for 12 volts from
socket to ground. if OK, bulb is not making contact. if not
OK, note wire colour and look for damaged or loose
connection from front. check white back up light as well.

Tail lights wont come on in 2001 toyota corolla

Check brake light switch, probably under dash,
on or next to brake pedal lever.
If bulbs and switch[es] check out, have helper press pedal,
and check for voltage/power at sockets.

I don't have any reverse lights on my 2000 toyota avalon

if the bulbs are good, then check the signal from the transmission range can check that at the bulb socket with the park brake set, the key on/engine off and put trans in reverse. use a test light and check power in the light socket. no power indicates bad fuse, bad wiring, or bad range switch.

I have a 2001 jeep grand cherokee and the only brake light that works is the rear top light. i have changed both bulbs and fuse seems to be ok.

Is that the top rear light on both the left and right rear side or just one side?. If so what is your question? On every car I have ever owned, there was only one light for the brake light on each side.. On some older cars, dual filament bulbs served as both a tail and brake light, and in some cases also the turn signal. Today most cars will have a separate bulb on each side of the car for each function. If you only have a light working on one side, obviously check the other side, both the bulb and the socket. The bulb can be tested with a continuity meter and the socket with a 12DV tester or a dc meter. You will need to have some one hold down the brake pedal when you test the socket. Also, some autos will not have power to the brake light system unless the key is in the run position. Hope I have given you some insight :))
