Hi, my 2004 Audi A4 3L cabriolet reverse lights are flashing on and off (when it is not reversing) Can you please let me know why is that. There are no other dashboard warning lights or anything. Thank you very much in advanced.

Is there any kind of switch on the gear shifter end of the circuit? My backup lights work as long as I hold the stick back.

Just made the diagnosis. Fortunately it's RHD and no Airco. The pain is that it blows the fuse every time i go in reverse, and therefore there's no Stop lights. When I put it back I will split the circuits and fit a separate fuse. On my other car, a 1970 MGB the reverse switch is to earth, so when it shorts you just have to temporarily remove the bulb.

Question. I have a Nissan Frontier. The sensor light comes on when I start the car, then goes out like normal. The problem I have is, When I put the car in reverse, after about 5 seconds, the light comes on and it no longer detects if I am close to an object. Do you know what might be the problem? Could I have a bad sensor? Thanks, in advance.

Good job! You should get yourself a little cell phone borescope camera. Cheap investment and you’d be surprised what you’ll be exploring on the car

what do the other wires left in the automatic harness do? also, did the cruise control work? also, when the clutch is in, it starts. after started when the clutch is out, will the clutch switch cut the electrical connection causing problems? can you still use a clutch switch instead of another brake switch?
