Fuse for T30 reverse lights


Good day gents,

A week or two ago I noticed that my Exy's reverse lights have ceased to function. Naturally I started by searching for the fuse (before pulling the tail light cluster apart). Try as I might I just cannot locate the fuse for the reverse lights. My owner's manual speaks of it, but the actual location remains a mystery. (yeah , yeah I know I should probably pull the lights off at the back to look at the bulbs, but now I am curious about that darn fuse!).

The brains trust here will surely be able to point me in the right direction... emoticon

Thanks in advance folks.

Hope you all have a great New Year.

Lupe.

Hi Lupe,

Happy New Year to you too.

It's fuse position number 12 in the fuse box under the steering

This may not be the only cause of the reverse lights not working, as there is a reverse lamp switch attached to the gearbox that may be faulty.

Hi Jalalski,

See now I posted in the wrong section, so thanks for moving the thread here to the correct place mate.

Okay - will check that position 12 later today (have to work right now!).
I actually suspect the problem would be blown globes. I have after-market reverse sensors fitted to my X-Trail, and I get a beep when I select reverse. Shortly before I realised my reverse lights were out of order I started getting double beeps - this may have been an indication that the resistance (or whatever is it is - don;t know every much at all about this stuff) triggered the double beep - much like your indicators will flash at a higher rate when one globe is broken.

But need to check all the stages anyway.

Will also look at linkages that could trigger the lights (erm... now where would that be?).

Have been using the Exy far too much out in the mountains and dirt roads to be concerned with trivialities such as broken revers lights. But now it is washed and back in the city, so may as well get the job list (consisting of one item... ) sorted out.

So thanks for the info - will check that and report back later.

EDIT: just had a quick look: the fuse slots are not numbered by position (i.e. no 'position 12'). Dealer hasn't been much help either... they reckon pull every single fuse to check (which would do, if my hands were Japanese in size! ;-)

Lupe, the fuse positions are not numbered, so you need to count the fuses as identify the 10A one which I highlighted in the diagram.

What are the chances of BOTH reverse bulbs to get blown at the same time? I reckon you have something else in there if not the fuse.

Re: Fuse for T30 reverse lights


Actually the images shown above do have numbers for the fuses (starting with number 1 at bottom right), even though the fuse-holder under the dash probably doesn't have the numbers (not enough room for them!).

I wonder if the aftermarket reverse sensor system is using too much power for the circuit, or was installed incorrectly and perhaps the wiring is damaged and therefore the blown fuse? Jalal is correct in stating the chances of blowing both globes together is very slim. I doubt the fuse is being overloaded as otherwise it would've blown straight after installation of the reverse sensor system.

You may need to consult the reverse sensor system installation/operation manual to find out what the two beeps means (and it's not "Stop! You're getting too close!"? emoticon ).

Okay - got the picture now (I'm at home) - could not see it from my work PC. Will follow that up, thanks for your patience.

Also managed to find the switch on the gearbox, but that appears to be fine.

Okay.

Check the fuse circled in image (thanks for that, I could not see the image earlier at work). Fuse is fine. Pulled a light cluster off (crikey - that really DOES need faith!), globe fine.

Then switched the ignition on (not started, just lights on dash), engaged reverse and opened bonnet to jiggle switch connector. This is when I noticed a high-pitched whine (not very loud, but clearly noticeable). I could be mistaken, but the sounds seems to come from the fuse box near the battery... and as luck would have it, I found the cover adrift some time ago.

To the dealer tomorrow I reckon.

Thanks for all your help gents.

The dealership's assessment is that it's the electrical switch on the gearbox.
The new switch is scheduled to be fitted next week.

Interestingly enough, prior to the inspection, two technicians from two different dealerships told me it may be the switch. Both admitted that this particular part had been something of an issue.

That's more like it and nope, it's not a known issue with the T30.
