Reversing light Hi, we have changed the bulb and fuse to no avail. Someone said it may be the switch on the box. Is this a job an amature can tackle or would I need to go to the garage? The car is not shown on the list it is a Peugeot 307 hdi 1.4. 2003. I will have to put a different model on the drop down list. Regards, Gill

Its easy, on top of box you can see the plug, normally a two pin i think your switch or plug is white, you can unplug and stick a piece of wire across terminals, then check if lights are on, if not its not the switch, do this and tell me how u got on

I changed my fuse and bulbs. Back lights still don't work except reverse

Late model cars work differently from the earlier ones and tend to use a CANbus system. That means lights aren't switched on by the dashboard switches but by a series of black boxes connected to a sort of digital super highway. The switches only send a signal for one of these to switch lights, wipers, heater and suchlike on or off.

If the local box has a good supply and all the lamps work (test with an independent supply) then the problem should be investigated by someone who has experience and a good dedicated scanner.

Hazards and indicators not working suspect fuse or bulb but can't find fuse?

Box under steering should have two flasher units (small metal cans that plug in like fuses) one runs hazards and one runs turns. If someone has changed bulbs to LEDs you must run different flashers designed to work with LED bulbs.

Reverse lights

The fuse is in the fuse box in the car, the hand book should tell you which fuse it is. If the fuse is OK, there is a switch on the front or top of the gearbox, should have two wires going to it. Could have come unplugged, if you bridge these wires and turn the ignition on, the reverse lights should come on, if they do, it's a faulty switch.

No reverse light, all fuse good. reverse Switch?

It's not that simple anymore . The transmission range sensor switch is what they have now . This range sensor informes the PCM - engine computer what gear the vehicle is in. When you put the gear selector into reverse B+ voltage from the range sensor to the PCM tells the PCM reverse has been selected , the PCM then will energize the reverse lamp relay (located in the under hood fuse/relay box) there by turning on the reverse lamps . There are two fuse's in the under hood fuse/relay box . F27 10amp. & F35 10amp.

I just purchased a 1996 cavalier. It didn't have an owners manual and i need to know what the abrieviations on the fuse box stand for. I'm trying to find the fuse for the brake lights and rear turn...

Hi, the likely problem is the turn signal switch. The signals and brake lights use different fuses. You can get an owners manual here:

A new switch is about $40, and it isn't too hard to replace. Make sure you get one that has the same controls as yours does. To replace the switch, remove the covers from the steering column, disconnect the switch and unscrew it from the column.

Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

I have a 1995 jeep wrangler and the reverse lights do not work

First thing I would do if you haven't already is replace the bulbs. You may want to have one bulb out and see if anything happens with a multimeter when it's in reverse. You most likely will need two people for this job. Most likely I would guess either a fuse, or your neutral safety switch is to blame. The fuse would most likely be the turn/bu fuse. The neutral safety switch is about a 20$ part and fairly easy to change.

I have a 2006 Ford Escape 2.3L Manual Transmission and my reverse lights are not other problems detectable. My dealer service dept tells me the Smart Junction Box is at fault. Is it possible...

no i think your problem is the reverse light switch in the gearbox or the bulbs but your dealer is trying to give some fairy story to turn a simple job into a major rewire or something ,either that or they employ monkeys because they only pay peanuts .ask a local mecahnic to check it out for you ,look for a feed to the reverse light switch on the gearbox first ,then if a feed put a paper clip across the two wires and see if the lights come on ,if they do then just renew the switch ,if no Supply then make one ,find fused ignition on supply in the power distribution box under the bonnet and run this to the switch and away you go --- simple .Problem with dealers is someone has to pay the gelled up nancy boys in suits who are so called salesman ,and not forgetting the barbie doll secretaries and the managers free company car .whos paying for all this??

My brake lights work my turn signals work but my rear back up lights don't work

Hi - sorry your having problems with your back up lights.
Let's do a quick check and simple first.
1 - remove the bulbs to see if they are burnt out- YES on occasion both will be out at the same time because one out isn't always noticed.
2- once we establish the bulbs are good - check your fuses. In the owners manual they will be labeled or on the fuse box cover. Some fuses are under the dash and some are under the hood and sometimes these must both be checked.
3 if the fuses are good you will need to check the adjustment at the shift lever/ transmission.
There is a switch that makes a connections and 'grounds' the wire making the lights light up. This must be checked for power with the car in reverse and jacked up and carefully put on jack stands. Many major injuries happen during this procedure so just be extra careful and it is best to have someone with you.
Be sure to check back if my suggestions don't cure the problem.
Thanks - please rate -
