Hi I have just bought a fiesta year 1997 5 door. I was just wondering if you could tell me where the reverse switch is on it as the reverse light isn't working and we have changed the bulb but it still not...


The reverse switch is located on the gearbox and has two wires attached to it, probably with spade terminals. (It looks like a pressure or temperature switch) Pull off the two terminals and touch them together. With the ignition on, the reverse lights should now function, unless your problem is elsewhere like in the wiring etc. If you replace the reverse light switch watch that it is not below the gearbox oil level plug. If it is, the gearbox oil will drain while the switch is out.

Reversing lights not working on my 1.6 ford escort m reg 1994. ive checked bulbs but still nothing. someone told me about a switch but i cant find it. any help please???


There is a switch attached to the gearbox which activates the reversing lamps when you place the gearbox into reverse. This switch has two wires going to it, one wire is an ignition live feed and the other is the feed to the rear lamps. This switch is usually on the side of the gearbox but quite high up towards the top of the gearbox. You can remove this switch with no danger of losing gearbox oil and replace it. Using a test lamp (which you can buy from any auto parts store), connect the end with the clip to the body on a clean area to ensure a good electrical connection and the pointy end to each of the wires on the switch in turn. With the ignition on but the engine NOT RUNNING, one wire should be active and the other will become active when the gearbox is placed in reverse gear. If neither of the wires are active, check fuses etc. If one wire is active but the other does not become active when reverse is selected, replace the switch. If both wires do what they are supposed too, check the wiring from the switch back to the rear lamps and check for broken or disconnected wires. The switch can be accessed from underneath the vehicle. Remember that these tests are conducted with the ignition turned on but THE ENGINE NOT RUNNING....
