It is on top of the transmission next to the shift cables. The switch should be hot while in reverse.
Hi, did you ever find out why your A140 reverse light always stay on even in other gears, I have the same issue, i have checked the bulbs, replaced the reverse light switch and still have them always on..
The reverse light switch is stuck or defective.
passenger side of the tranny on mine there are two switches, the forward one is the reverse switch the other one is the speed sensor
Try bypassing the reverse light switch that plugs into the transmission. If your reverse lights come on, voila! Problem solved. Buy a new switch.
Short circuit somewhere in the reverse-light or even the reverse switch itself. Other causes are also possible.
The problem is the reverse light switch. It is located on the top of the transmission that should sloved your problem.
for reverse lights, check the reverse light switch that is located on the transmission. for fog light, check bulbs, or broken wires for reverse lights, check the reverse light switch that is located on the transmission. for fog light, check bulbs, or broken wires
There is probably a problem with your selector i had the same problem on my 5 speed boxs the other day change the clutch and the reverse light switch but for got to put the washer on the switch so it whent in to far and caused the reverse link not to go in
the reverse light switch is either out of adjustment. or broken. new one should be fairly cheap
The reverse light sensor switch on the gearbox needs replacing. The switch is normally located on top of the gearbox & around the middle of underneath the air intake box.
check your back up light switch
On my 1993, 1 is Brown/with a light green tracer, the other is black. If the bulbs are good & the sockets look O.K. The Back up lights then go to the transmission. Right side reverse switch or some say neutral safety switch.
Sounds like someone has tinkered with 3-way switches (used to control one light from 2 switches).
Turn the first light switch on and wait 5 minutes, turn it off. Turn the second light switch on and go into the other room. The light bulb that is currently "on" represents the second light switch. Touch the next two light bulbs and which ever is hotter represents the first light switch. You can find the third by cancelling out the other two.
Shorted or corroded socket Blown fuse Bad or misadjusted switch
check the back-up light switch. and the wire. switch is on the top of the transaxle. check battery side of switch with the ignition in the on position for voltage. if none chech wiring between switch and fuse. if there is check the ground side for voltage. put shifter in reverse and check if none replace switch. if there is wire between switch and bulb needs to be checked.
A switch simply opens a circuit, stopping the flow of electricity. For example: a simple circuit would be two wires from a battery, one of which goes to a switch, and the other goes to a light bulb. A third wire goes from the other side of the switch to the other conductor of the light bulb. With the switch closed the circuit is complete and the light goes on. Open the switch and the circuit is broken and the light goes off.
You can't. You will need a 3way switch at each end with 12/3 or 14/3 wire run between them. Power at one switch and light wire at the other switch.
The reversing light switch on a Renault laguna is in much the same as on many other cars. Basically it links to the gearbox or the gear lever, so that when the gear lever is at the reverse position it engages the switch. On the laguna it is on the gearbox near to the left hand end (from the drivers view). You must remove the left front wheel to see it more clearly and possibly the plastic under-engine plastic shield. The switch is normally open, and shorts out when you engage reverse, so you can test it with an ohm meter.
Toggle = back and forth, or on and off. A toggle switch toggles (turns) a light or other device on or off. Good example is a light switch (the wall kind)-- a toggle switch must also be of the "throw the stick back and forth" kind. Which a light switch basically is.
The problem could be in many different places. First, check the fuses that control the reverse lights and the licence plate lights. In the Secon Generation Neons (2000-2005), this is fuse #7 on the indoor panel. If the fuse is good, then you need to check the lights. For the reverse lights, you need to pull the carpet in the trunk away from the light housing, twist the light out of its position (by twisting a quarter turn), and pull the light assembly straight out. Be very careful when pulling the light out of its housing, as the bulb is not very secure in its socket and can easily become disloged inside the housing. If the bulb is in good condition, the problem may be in the wiring or the reverse switch (for the reverse lights). If you are not very experienced with electrical work, this is best checked at a shop. If you do feel comfortable working with electrical systems, you can test if there is a current passing from the switch to the light. This can be done by attaching an ammeter to the bulb contacts for the reverse light. The car should then be turned on and put into reverse. MAKE SURE SOMEONE IS IN THE CAR WITH THEIR FOOT ON THE BRAKE WHILE THE CAR IS IN REVERSE! If there is no amperage going to the bulb, or the amperage is significantly less than 10A, there is a problem in the reverse switch or the wiring. If at all possible, inspect the wiring throughout, looking for any shorts or breaks in the wire. If none are found, the problem is likely in the reverse switch, and the reverse switch will likely need replaced. In the Second Generation Neons(Automatic Transmission), this switch is located on the front of the transmission, drivers side, and is most easily accessed on the underside of the car. It is a rubber plug with three wires coming out of it. One is White, One is Purple, and I believe the other is Black. I am not quite sure where the switch is located on the first generation Neons.
there are a couple of settings you need to turn the light off at the light switch. it will then only come on if a door is open any time you want to use it ,you can switch it on or off at the light switch you can turn it off at the light switch on the dash it will then come on when you open a door any other time you want to use the cargo light you can switch it on or off at the light switch
Light switches don't hum but transformers do . If your "light switch" is a dimmer switch or there is some other function than a simple on/off , then you might hear the 60 hz vibration as the mechanics may be loose .
You need two separate switches. You can get two switches that are in the same form factor as a single switch (2 gang switch). You use one switch for the outlet and the other for the light. You switch the black wires which are "hot".
A brake light switch is a mechanical electric switch that is set in the off position (open circute) and located in front of the brake pedal. When you step on the pedal and its position changes the switch complete's its circute sending power to the brake light. The brake light switch is protected by a fuse or circute breaker and has no other connection with the operation of the brakes.
