Question about 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300-Class

1 Answer

Reverse lights don't work.

Hey people.  My '87 300TD's reverse lights won't come on anymore.  The lights use to come on about 85% of the time when I'd put the car in reverse.  However now, they aren't coming on at all.  Both bulbs are fine.  The fuse is fine.  I've checked everything I know...  Any suggestions?  Just trying to avoid the expensive Bosch mechanic, if I can.

The switch for the backup lamps is located on the left side of the transmission changing it will probably solve your problems.

My reverse lights don't work on my 2000 323CI 5 speed BMW when in gear


The fuse holder contains 10A fuse F27 which supplies power to the reversing light switch. When you shift into reverse with the engine running, the switch closes and the back up lights turn on. If the fuse is OK, you may have a defective switch

My back reversing lights wont work but the bulbs and the fuse are all good?


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case then it's definitely a reverse switch issue. If the reverse switch is faulty, the reverse light won't work even if the bulbs are fine. It is located underneath the transmission where it triggers when reverse is engaged. Have it replaced and you'll be good.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
