Question about 1997 Volkswagen Golf
I have a couple of probelms with my 2.0 golf gti mark 3.
Firstly, my reverse light does not come on when reverse gear is chosen, i have replaced the bulb but still nothing - is there a fuse for the reverse light and if so where is this located ??
Secondly, the 15 amp fuse for my central locking, cigarette lighter, interior light and trip computer keeps blowing after only ac ouple of days - i've heard this could be down to the fact my rear windscreen wiper has ceased, could this be the case and if so how do i go about unsticking the rear wiper ??
Any assistance in this matter would be grately appreciated as i'm looking to sell the car soon !!

On the this Golf the panel is located by the driver’s right knee, under the dash panel.
NOTE: fuse specifications are listed on inside of panel cover.

Pinched, worn, or otherwise damaged wire somewhere. You will need to investigate further to find the problem.
Get a continuity tester and check for continuity to ground with each wire.
I would suspect a door wire before the dome light wire.

check the shifter as it should have the reverse contact in the console, if the shifter has some play in it then the contacts for the switch could have become damaged.. good luck
