I have an 2003 Toyota echo and i want to install a Reverse sensor kit with cam and monitor. but i don't see any wires on my reverse light to tap into. the only light with wires are the brake light.

Best bet is to purchase a spec manual for the make model and year of your car from an auto parts store. they're about $30.00 but worth every cent now and down the road. This is the first question I've answered that wasn't a line of s**t..

I have a 1990 toyota four runner sr5 my rear hatch has no power and on this model the reverse lights are on the tail gate when I put it in reverse very dim lights were u can barely see any thing any...

Check Tailgate to Body Contacts--Likely dirty or position problem.

On models without Contact Assembly, wires broken in flex tube ( not easy to spot.)

When I put my truck in reverse the reverse lights dont work

There is a reverse light switch in your gearshift on some cars/trucks that can go bad..
I would check the light bulbs, then the wiring back to your reverse lights, check to see if you have a fuse that could of blown for your model truck, then think about replacing your reverse switch.

It would be nice to know the make model and year of the car but I will take a stab... First check your back up lights. Check the fuse for them... It could be a problem the the reverse light switch and depending on the car can be on the transmission or shift linkage.... Good luck!

The reverse lightbulbs should be 1156. The issue coould be the trans reverse switch, but that is a rare failure. What I would do is be looking for corrosion at the connector that is under the bed, and then branches out to the taillamps. With the key on, and the trans in reverse, you should have 12 volts at the Red with a Black tracer wire in that connector. This is a very common failure area.
Hope this helps.
