Why won't Reverse lights work no matter what I do?

Find and check the reversing lamp switch, it may be on the gear linkage or on the side of the gearbox/transmission.
you should a 12volt feed whenever the ignition is turned on. If you dont, recheck all fuses with a test lamp ( which you can buy from any auto parts store) and check the wiring for an open circuit or break in the wire. If power is available, check the output of the switch by testing each wire in turn with the ignition on and the gear shift in reverse ( dont have the engine running for this).
If you cannot find an output, replace the switch. If you find an output, check the wiring all the way back to the reversing lamps with the test lamp by carefully stabbing the correct wire until the test lamp no longer lights up. this means the break is bwtween where the tested the wire and it lit up and where it did not light up.
Repair or replace as needed.

I have a 2000 VW Beetle, automatic transmision. The handle is locked on park position. ABS and Brake lights turns on at the same time. How can I unlock the transmision?

possibly the brake light switch above the brake pedal is faulty. The transmition lever will not move unless your foot is on the brake, if the switch that senses this action is faulty, the transmision lever will not move.

when you say ABS and Brake lights turns on at the same time, do mean the lamps at the rear of the car are on or are you refering to warning lamps on the dash panal?

if you meant dash panal then check your stop lights are working, if all 3 dont work, this definately points to a faulty brake light switch.

if your stop lights are on all the time, then this also could be either a faulty switch, or the switch has been dislodged from its bracket above the brake pedal.

I have the warning indicator on that reports a light bulb is burned out, but all my lights are on and appear to be working. What is the best approach to this problem?

Double check all the lights. Pay close attention to the reverse lights and all the turn signal lamps. The reverse is the most commonly over looked. Have some with you while checking these lamps to confirm. Also check rear licence plate light. Failing that unplug a bulb, any (the easiest), with all the running and headlights on. Plug it back in and check warning light again this my reset it.

even though it won't start it should still be possible to retrieve fault codes. On an OBDII car your going to have to have a code reader tool, so either have your shop scan it or buy a scan tool. Post up your codes and someone should be able to helkp you from there

A light sensor on the front passenger side is hanging down. where do i plug it into?

does your car have parktronic-possibly a parktronic sensor. if not more than likely an outside temp. sensor. probably plugs into your tow hook cover on the front bumper. If there is a light bulb in the socket the only one that comes to mind is your side marker lamp. the lens pops out and the bulb socket pushes in and turns to secure the socket

Interior lights

What they are speaking of is the GEM module however this will not correct the concerns you have.
The GEM controls the following functions:
  • warning chimes and warning lamps
  • one-touch down window
  • windshield washers and wipers
  • battery saver
  • illuminated entry with keyless remote entry
  • interior lighting
Turn signals and hazzard lamps do not go thru the GEM module at all and the reverse lamps all the gem does there is look for reverse so it knows when to activate the auto lock doors when vehicle is in motion.
I suspect you have 2 or more problems here that you may want to get checked by an experienced Ford tech.Also the GEM has to be programed when replaced.It is not plug and play.

Hi i had a similar problem with a peugeot 607 it turned out to be a faulty brake light switch that was sometimes not working and so confusing the asr system. It also left no fault code but did activate the asr warning lamp when it was faulty. try checking the brake light switch for an intermittent fault. Hope this helps

Reversing light dosent always work

Hi ddsnail123,
What you could be dealing with here, is a bad earth connection, or just as likely, a sticking or defective reverse lamp switch ( you'll find that on the gear box. If it's a manual it will have two cables and if it's an auto, it will be on the main gear selector switch)....The other alternative is, that the lamp holders or the connectors may be corroded inside and require cleaning or replacement....
