Good Evening everyone,
Have spend hours on this one today, but no joy yet. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Recently purchased a 2.0L Focus Diesel Ghia on a 56 plate. Have had it a week and realised that my reverse light wasn't working. Factory fitted parking sensors are working fine. Bulb was blown so replaced, but still not working. But now sensors stopped working. So took bulb back out again and lo and behold sensors started working again.

When reverse gear is engaged there is voltage to the bulb connector, but only reading about 7 or 8 volts rather than the expected 11/12volts. Have checked the connector by swapping with the rear fog light, but no improvement.

Have tinted rear windows so reversing without a light is really tough so keen to get to the bottom of this.

Would be grateful if anyone could point me in the right direction.

Many thanks
