    Reverse Light ISSUE

    Both my reverse Lights have decided not to WOrk. I have tried another bulbs and its the same! Does anybody know the fuse number for the Reverse Lights or Any other Possible Causes for this.

    My Dad mentioned it could be the MicroSwitch! If so does anybody know where this is situated?


    Cheers

    Fuse location will be in a sticky at the top of the forum but I suspect it will be the switch

    Obvioulsy always check the fuse first

    The unit definatly has power as all other lights work fine!

    Also is the switch somethin you can replace yourself and were is it situated!

    Does any one know the cost of a switch and the part number?

    Ive Read my Manual Etc and the STICKY (which is a different Fuse Box to mine) and cannot find any mention of a Reverse Light Fuse in it for my Car! The Fuse was the First thing i went looking for as i assumed thats wot it would be for both to simultaniously fail!

    My engine is the Z18XE

    Ive Checked out Fuse 29 and thats Fine so it sounds like it could be the Switch.

    Is it Possible to Change this yourself or is it a dealer Jobby!

    Also if you can do it yourself were is the Switch and Does anyone know the Part Number and Cost for it fo r the Z18XE!
