I checked the connector on top of the trans and no power to or from--
what would be the suggested course of action from here after I check the fuses again--
anybody know which fuse controls the back up lights?

Also when I checked the fuses I had just washed and Zaino;d the car and the floor under the fuses were damp--

PLease remember I am very limited in my knowledge about this stuff so the mo simple the mo betta please and thank you-

regards

I just went outside and checked mine and there is no power on either side with the lights activated and my backup lights work just fine. Unless there is a problem with my tester I dont think that there should be any power in those wires, they just complete the connection.

My reverse light switch connections were actually corroded away, I had to order a new one.

shadowhusky,
Even if thats not my problem i still need to replace the connections-do you happen to remember where you got your replacements from and any part numbers i might need?
Or
Hoover?
thanks in advance!!

i have to check our inventory.
we often replace the pig tail and the parts come from the u.k.

will call you tomorrow.

i got my revers switch from www.fordpartsuk.com

Hoover and Rossion did not have the part in stock at the time. I think Rossion has the pigtail with the appropriate connector on their website thats fits the revers light switch if Hoover doesnt have it.

I just soldered some wire on the actual switch and filled it with silicone so it cant corrode away again and then put my own waterproof connector on.

thanks all for the help.
I would rather get from Hoover-- just had to buy a set of horns from Rossion-- i was told it was the perfect replacement-
the two horns they sent were identical-- if you notice they are not identical ---shaped a little differently and each is a different note on the stock ones--
i had no choice but to use what they sent..
