My guess would be the neutral safety switch on the transmission. The switch also acts as a backup light switch when the shifter is in reverse. I would check for power at the switch for the reverse light circuit.
The headlight bulb is a fairly simple replace. If involves removing the old light by reaching behind the hedlight where the socket with the wires goes into the headlight. It usually is just a quarter turn or a squeeze and turn kind of motion. Once the socket is out of the headlight then you will be able to simply pull the bulb out and replace with a new one...NOTE...do not touch the new headlight bulb with your fingers...we have an oil that is naturally produced in our skin and can make your new bulb fail prematurally. Use a paper towel to install the new bulb or a gloved hand.
Hello. The symptoms you are describing are likely due to a poor ground. Temporarily install a new ground wire by securing a piece of copper wire to the frame with a self tapping screw. Use this ground wire along with the hot wire to see if each of these lights works. If it does, trace the ground wire back to the frame, unscrew it and clean up the metal with emery cloth so you reestablish a good ground.
remove the screws from the lens and pull bulb straight uot towards you, if no screws are present reach behind the light and turn the bulb holder counter clockwise then pull bulb straight out and replace w\ new one
Thre are two possible things wrong, one is bulbs, always check these first, and second the reverse switch on the gear box, either the switch is duff or the connections to it are,
Locate the switch and check for 12v, if that is OK then connect the two connectors on the switch, (I use a 7a blade type fuse) and see if the lights (the one you have checked the bulb on) is working, if it dos the problem is in the switch and you will need to replace it.
check the wire because if the fuse keep blowing there's a wire somewhere on the car that has contact with the frame so everytime you put your car on reverse the 12V wire shortcut on the frame so the fuse blow check all your positive wire and your bulb as well
Yes the switch is almost certainly the problem, it is located on the top of the trans under the lever that moves to select gear ranges, hard to miss, it has a large multi-wire connector on it, it is adjustable so make sure u make a mental note of the position of the 2 bolts (these retain the switch to the trans case) in the switch adjusting slots. The switch is called either the nuetral safety switch or the transmission range switch.
