reverse light assemblies
Having functioning reverse light assemblies is important for drivers to see what is behind their vehicle when they select reverse gear. Here we explain more.
Reverse light assemblies for a vehicle
The reverse light assemblies for a vehicle are crucial for when we want to reverse and see what is behind us - the light also warns other road users and pedestrians that your vehicle is about to move backwards. While the reverse light is not part of the MOT - if it isn't working then you won't fail the MOT - it's always worth keeping an eye on the reverse light to ensure it works. Most cars will have one reversing light and some will have two. European law states that a car should have at least one reversing light and a fog light fitted to the rear of a vehicle. The reverse light is usually white in colour so other road users will recognise it and be aware of the reversing vehicle.
The reverse light assemblies will incorporate everything from the lens cover - these lights will be part of one or both of the rear light clusters on your vehicle - as well as the bulb, bulb holder, wiring and fuses. Some drivers may want to fit an extra strong reverse light because they need more light when reversing in the dark - over rough ground for instance. These strong reversing lights are available as kits though it may be a good idea for a professional to fit the light to ensure it works properly and doesn't affect other electrical items. Indeed, should you have issues with the reverse light then a professional should have a look at it and repair or replace it as necessary.
Problem with your reverse light assemblies
Should you have a problem with your reverse light assemblies then you can work out what the potential problem might be. The electrical circuit is a simple one which is operated by a switch mounted on the gearbox (in most cars). This switch will work automatically when reverse gear is selected though if the reverse light was added after it was made - or you have fitted an extra strong lamp - then this switch might be on the dashboard. The most common issue will be a blown bulb and you can remove the rear of the light cluster to replace it. However, if this bulb lights up in an electric current test then the problem will be elsewhere in the circuit so you will have to check for breaks in wires or loose connections. On a manual gearbox the simple fix may be to adjust the locknut and for an automatic box some have an adjustable switch and your vehicle manual will explain this procedure.
