I would say that would depend on the state, but I have never lived in a state where it was a requirement, and Missouri has a pretty strict safety inspection compared to other states. The only places that I would think might be a problem is New York, California, and Illinois. Hope that helps. Thanks and don't forget to vote.

If a reversing camera is fitted to my 7.5t vehicle at work.does it have to work as a legal requirement


YES
all lights and accessories such as reverse cameras , beepers , reverse lights , fog lights , bull lights etc all have to work or have to be removed
if the camera is factory fitted, you have to get it working as it cannot be removed as it is part of the build of the car
same as you cannot remove air bags because they don't work

Reverse light not working what to do


If bulbs are good then you need to check the switch that powers them when you put the car into reverse.

FYI - Neutral safety switch prevents car from starting unless it is in neutral transmission position only.

I should use my flashing lights when I am going back? I think that is importante to send a warning to another drivers that I am moving back


Sure it is a good ideal some people put a back up beeper on the reverse light so it beeps when backing up. If you get one and install it be sure it is less than 90 Decbels to be legal. If you need help to wire it let me know it is quite simple to do.

2005 Pathfinder no reverse lights


On the side of your transmission will be a switch with several wires coming out of it. This is your reverse switch that turns on your reverse lights and most likely needs to be replaced
