The backup lights are turned on when your Windstar is placed in reverse. Otherwise, they would be on constantly.

Where is the back up lights fuse or wire for 2012 kia optima under the dash so i can wire in the power for a wireless backup camera receiver.


In the drivers kick panel is a bunch of wires. It should be one of the 15 or so blue ones. You can test each one with the car in reverse u til it has 12 volts then put in park and make sure it goes away. In all honesty it will be easier to run a wiire from the backup light to the front.

One reverse light mazda


"Life wire??" I don't know what you mean.
Usually, the backup camera will derive its power from the positive lead of your backup lights, so that it only turns on when you're backing up. You can use a standard wire tap to derive positive (+) from either backup light, and use chassis ground for the negative (-) lead of the camera.

Backup light not working


Replace the backup light on the right side. Its most likely burned out. A blown fuse would cause both lights to not work. You might have bad wiring to that side. If you have access to a volt meter, have an assistant put your car in reverse while you check the voltage at the backup light socket. Make sure to tell your assistant to keep their foot on the brake pedal. Voltage should about 12 volts

Is there a trick to getting to the rear turn signal on a 2003 ford focus hatchback. I had removed the screw to the lens cover but I still cannot gain access to the turn signal bulb to replace it.


Replacing tail/brake/backup lights and turn signal bulbs (coupe)

1. Make sure the headlamp control

is in the OFF position and then

open the hatchback.

2. From inside the luggage

compartment remove the wing nut

of the rear light assembly cover.

3. Using a Phillips screw driver

remove the screw. The lamp is still

retained by a spring loaded clip.

Remove by gently pulling out the

light housing.

4. Turn the bulb socket counterclockwise as far as possible and pull it

out.

5. Pull the bulb straight out of the socket.

Install in reverse order.
