Not sure what transmssion you have but basically it goes from fuse on P/O wire to either the MLP switch on automatic or just a backup lamp switch on manual and leaves the switch on BK/PK wire to the bulbs. Should be easy to trace with a 12v test light.

Sounds like a bad back up light switch. Most are located in console w/ shifter.

SOURCE: My reverse light stays on

It seems the reverse light switch which is fitted on the gear box has sized to 'on' position, the remedy is to replace the switch.
To male sure its the switch, locate it and remove the connection to the switch thn check it out if the reverse light stays 'on' whn you turn the igntion 'on'.

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

SOURCE: Brake light, reverse light and turn signal issues

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.

Reverse lights only work sometimes on isuzu wizzard


Manual gearbox: check on right hand side of gearbox. There's an electrical switch(looks like large nut nut) with 2 wires coming out of it These wires have connectors toward the top of the gearbox, diconnect them.
The wires that this switch was connected to, conect them to each other. ie the reverse light switch has been bypassed. Put the vehicle in reverse. Turn on the ignition. DO NOT START. Check the reverse lights. If on the switch is faulty and needs to be replaced. If not measure the voltage across each of the wires and a good earth point. (Gearbox casing will do fine. ) One of the wires should read < 12V.
If 12V then
  • Globes are faulty(Replace)
  • wiring to the globes are faulty - unlikely -(This can be repaired by simply running a new wire to the globes)
If no 12V then the wiring to the fusebox is faulty. A quick fix is to run a new wire from the fusebox to the switch(Connect to fuse C-3, indicated as "turn, back")

1999 Lantra - which fuse is for the reverse lights


may not have one because it could be hooked up to your ignition,so i would suggest that you check for power on the switch it self,if you got power both sides then remove your light globe and check if any power is there,if so replcae globes,if not check wiring from switch to lights.

Volvo 240 reverse lights don't work


Hi Sir

Checked the switch and plug? here's how :)

Yes it is the reverse light switch which is hooked up to your gearbox which needs to be replaced. Also it could be the plug going into this switch is a bit dirty or thorn (due to engine temperature and time wear) which in that case means that it needs to be fixed before replacing the switch.

Checking its actually the swtich so you don't buy it for nothing :)

Just to make sure that the circuitry is ok. Go to the gearbox (if it is front wheel drive transverse engine you wont need to go underneath) check where the gearbox and linkages are close to the revers there should be a switch n plug hooked up to it. Unplug it put in a piece of wire to short circuit both wires. Then turn the ignnition key on and if your circuitry is fine the lights should go on :) This means that its the switch for sure :) I hope that this helped your problem :)
