Thanks for reply,never thought about a relay.Have you any idea where the relay is?Thanks

Should be in the engine compartment Fuse Box, lift the bonnet, small rectangular box close to the battery,

also under the lid should display a diagram of each relay and its purpose :)

Mysterious relay. I tried to find this but not described on the fuse box lid. Also not listed in manual. When checked visually all my relays seem to have good coils. Difficult one

AFAIK there is no relay for the reversing lights, as the load is very low.

I have same problem. The car is in FORD's garage and the guys are investigating it. As soon as I have answer will post it here as may be helpful. If I will have no joy will need to tap somewhere to 12v, utilize the reversing light switch, pull some cables and glue on some 12v led's
