Reversing lights not working
« on: March 29, 2021, 09:58:21 PM »
Hi all, does anyone know which fuse covers the reversing lights on the 2007 Seat Alhambra.
My drivers handbook does not show any fuse that covers this, and I am starting at this end and working
my way to the reversing light switch. I have pulled a few fuses but am assuming it to be 10 amps or less.
No faulty fuses yet!

       Any help greatly appreciated.

I would start at switch first just unplug and bridge it out see if lights come on. Also worth a check of the tailgate wiring harness as always a possibility there are some broken wires.

Reverse lights are no5 15amp but you would lose other stuff aswell as parking sensors as that fuse does a few different circuits.

Impressive, well done for fixing it my friend!!

 [GJ]
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.

 [GJ] As the car ages there will be more issues with door and tailgate wiring, something to look forward to :)
