    Hey all, just about to get my car back on the road.

    Fixed all the problems but the revere lights are not working now.

    Checked the bulbs and checked the fuses.

    Any ideas?

    Check the wiring as well. If that is ok, then it will be down to the reverse light switch, no. 15 HERE. Easy to replace, as it just screws off

    Check the switch as suggested by Neal P. It is a simple fix

    if you bridge the reverse light plug the lights should come on, if yes then you need a switch

    Not sure what problems you have had previously (as I'm a new member) but if it's not your switch the tracks that connect between different bulbs on the rear of the light units can corrode or give bad connections quite easily. Might be worth a look.
