    So just found out that my reversing lights are not working
    This was discovered today when stereo engineer was connection reversing camera
    There seems to be no power to the reverse light
    Any ideas how to correct this
    Slightly amazed this was not picked up on its MoT only a month ago

    Reverse lights obviously aren't part of the MOT
    Theyre usually switched via the auto selector but it could be anything from a blown fuse to damaged wiring.

    I believe reversing lights are now part of the mot, at least on newer cars.

    Do you have the tiptronic gearbox or the PRND432 gearbox?
