    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.

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.

Most likely a fuse is bad, get out your owners manual and see which one powers the lights. Buy a good test light and it will help you the rest of your mechanic career. Then you can test the fuses without pulling them out to look at them, and test them electrically. first to confirm they are indeed getting power and then that they are good.

My spoiler brake light works but my to other wont...fuse is good...what can it be? i have a 2004 toyota corolla S type

Check the light bulbs. Sometimes if you by mistake insert the wrong light bulb, this happens. There are One Filament bulbs (for reverse) and Two Filament bulbs (for brakes and signals). Wrong placement provokes shorts.
