Reverse Light Not Illuminating

Recommended Posts

I have a 54 reg Mondeo. My reverse lights have stopped working. My colleague and I checked the fuse, which is ok and put that and the bulb through his volt meter - both gave a good reading.

So it seems like it's the switcher or something like that. Any ideas what and how easy/expensive to fix?

very common on mondys for the switch to go.

To make sure disconnect the wiring connector from the switch (ontop of the gearbox, just under the air filter housing) and join the connectors wire ends together (witha piece of spare wire), if the reverse lights come on then its the switch thats gone.

Switches arent much and its just a simple undo and replace job. I cant remember what size it is though.

your not the only one :p

Basically CAN Bus is a generic comms system in the car part of the diagnostics system. But as for tracking errors down, its difficult. I have a CAN BUS error on my car, its a pain in the backside as I havent got a clue where it is, I suspect its the instrument cluster wiring but not sure!

Well I got the reverse switch looked at yesterday at the garage and it was faulty so that now works...as does the cruise control! So, the cruise must somehow be linked to that switch. However it works, at least it does without me having to pay for them to look at that too. :-)
