Sounds like a bad switch usually located on the transmission. might even be unplugged.

Stuck in park,power windows don't work,reverse lights don't work dash doesn't work. keeps blowing 10 amp fuse for reverse lights.changed brake pedal switch didn't help


of course changing a brake pedal switch will not help in a reversing light problem
they are two totally different circuits
check for a damaged wire at the reverse light switch or bulb holder for the reversing bulbs for a dead short
as for the rest check the IGN fuse under the bonnet

Hyundai tuscon 05. Reverse light doesnt work, bulb fine ,fuse are good and new switch installed. What next?


Does bulb socket have a ground wire, or just uses mounting point as ground? Check for voltage at each part of system. Start with fuse, then switch both in and out of reverse, then bulb.

2004 golf4 reverse lights not working


Follow these steps:-
- first check both bulbs.
- Next check you got voltage/Ground on the bulb holders.
- Bulb holder contacts may be bad if you get voltage.
- If no Voltage on Bulbs when Gear shift is at 'R'.
- Check Fuse, broken wires, check the switch under gear shift
which closes circuit when G/Shift is at 'R' position.

Rear stop lights (lower) won't come on when pedal depressed, BUT the high mount stop light does come on. Changed the bulbs - no go, the old ones did not look bad. All other rear lights work fine. ...


If all bulbs are known to be good, check fuse for brake lights (stop lamp fuse). If fuse is ok, go to next step
Next step- Does this Camry have a display in the instrument panel that indicates when a brake light is out? (not sure, check owner's manual)
If so, you may have a defective brake lamp sensor. Its mounted in the trunk on the right side. It may be blue, black, brown or yellow and may need to be unsnapped or unscrewed to remove. It will say on its cover what it is. You will need the number off of it to get the proper replacement. They run about $400.

My back reversing lights wont work but the bulbs and the fuse are all good?


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case then it's definitely a reverse switch issue. If the reverse switch is faulty, the reverse light won't work even if the bulbs are fine. It is located underneath the transmission where it triggers when reverse is engaged. Have it replaced and you'll be good.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Reverse lights do not work, checked all fuses and the bulbs


Hi sorry to hear you're having problems

Most likely you have lost the connection at the transmission. Please when you do your next oil change just ask the technician to check and be sure the wires are on and tight at the reverse light switch.

Best of it please let me know if this helps.
