SOURCE: i have a 1989 ford F150 xlt and my reverse lighta dont work

ok i understand now the easiest thing for you to do is just get something to connect the two wires together,( like a short piece of wire ) bypassing the switch. have someone watch the reverse lights while you do this. if the lights come on then you need a switch. if not you have a bad wire or fuse/ fusible link. you can use a test light to see if you have power to the switch, one wire should have power and the other leads to the reverse lights. you can test the switch itself with a ohm meter, or continuity tester aswell if you have one. if you need more help i am here for you... dustang

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

Locate the fuse box underneath the drivers side steering wheel and remove the cover lid. Underneath the lid is a diagram of what each fuse controls. Locate the "Stop Lamp" and "Taillight" fuses and pull them out and check them with a fuse test light (avalible at your local auto parts store) Replace the burned out fuse with the same number fuse (the amp number is located on top of the fuse) and your lights will work again

2003 altima dash fuse blows when i put in reverse and alternator stops working

It is electrical, could be initiated by mechanical (shift lever mechanics are pinching a wire in reverse) or a shorted wire or solenoid in the reverse light system or transmission solenoid circuit. Need a detailed wiring diagram to determine path of circuit for that fuse. That is where you need to start. Try your local library or dealer for a service manual. Look Online also.

1992 honda integra horn fuse blows after applying brakes

Honda makes the Integra but it uses the Acura name in the US.
According to the wiring diagram the brake lights and horn are on the same circuit. So I would check the bulbs and sockets for a short.
The brake light switch also involves the cruise control system.
