Both lights do not come on in reverse

Both reverse lights do not come on in reverse. Had bulbs changed about 2 months ago. Was working fine until recently. How do I trouble shoot and resolve this problem? Thank you.

No Reverse and the fluid is dirty and smells funny.


Sounds like you blew out your reverse belt/gear in the transmission. Probably going to need a transmission rebuild/replacement.

Passenger side reverse light bulb stays lit when lights are turned on. Replaced bulb but didn't solve problem?


Sometimes such a problem is because the ground wire for that light is bad, and so the electricity is feeding to ground through the back-up light.
Try to run a new ground wire from that light socket to the steel body ground.
Be blessed.

2009 V50 back up lights are both out. What could it be? Not the fuse or bulb.


if fuse and bulbs are fine then it's your reverse switch that's not working. it is located at the transmission, change it. but before changing you should make sure that the wires are not cut or faulty.

My brake lights work but my tail lights and reverse lights don't work. Also my dash lights quit when I changed the switch for my headlights.


Check your fuses. I had the same problem with a 90 Honda civic. Dash lights went out, tail lights also went out. Replaced 1 fuse and all came back on.

Mondeo '97 2.0 petrol wont start. Unusually had the aircon on for the whole day before if thats anything. Have checked fuses and removed the connectors from black box above/next to accelerator for 30mins,...


Scanning the onboard computer will probably reveal one or more problems. Probably the fastest way to resolve your issues.
If you have a chain auto parts store in your area, they will often scan it free of charge.

Brake lights and rear running lights don't work


good one, love these kinds of failures.
are you in the salt belt (wiki that)
dont buy no name lamps, (from china)
they make a bad product, cheap and poor.
also check alternator voltage 15vdc max, if more lamps can burn out.
only 3 causes, voltage, junk from china, or wild crazy vibration.
id say its not that last one, no?
we shot huge guns in the Navy and blew lamps and fuses like mad.
So, know a thing or 2.

your lamps seem to be modified
some one put in the wrong lamps. easy to do sure.
wj jeeps.
brakes, not park not reverse not blinks only brakes right
not tails , tails means PARK.

most glove box operators guides tell you what to use.
ever read it?

or here, SM
chapter 8L
lamp 3157

go here click WJ
then click lamps
