Rear Tail Lights not working


I have a X-Trail MY11 Ti CVT 4WD T31 Auto (Released 1210)
My issue is checking why the reat tail lights aren't working.
I have physically checked all fuse under dash though didn't put a multi-meter across them to check for continuity.
I found the owners manual next to useless in locating which fuse to check, so checked them all visually & they all look good.
I think the original problem rose from my caravan which I still have to sort out but I really have to get to the bottom of the problem with the car.
Anyone know which fuse could be the problem.

Hi Rod,

Not sure which fuse you have checked, but the tail lights have a dedicated 10A fuse which is located in a fuse box in the engine bay and you will need to remove the air intake tube to see this fuse-box.

If you refer to THIS DIY Guide on how to re-set the ECU, you will see how to remove the intake and get to the tail light fuse.

Based on what you said, it looks like the carvan harness is faulty.

Aha. The one in the engine bay.
Are they marked better that the under dash ones.

Does this also control the number plate circuit because they are out as well. (Doh...forgot to mention that)

Yep, they are clearly marked as you can see in the photos. Not sure about the number plate being on the same circuit but I guess you will soon find out emoticon

Re: Rear Tail Lights not working


Hi Rod,
          Follow Jalals guide as above, as the fuse you want is in the underside of the IPDM module. The fuse you want is number 45 and is rated at 10 amps. It feeds both your tail lights and number plate lights. The module is the one that is about 200 mm square and about 30 to 40 mm thick, you need to hold the clips out from the side of it while lifting it out as Jalal's picture shows. When your done replacing the fuse, just check that all the plugs are fairmly in before putting the module back in.

Regards
John

Re:


Rod,
There are 2 fuse boxes in the engine bay, right next to each other.
The one with the tail lamp fuse is the one closest to the headlight I think.

Re: Rear Tail Lights not working


Hi Rod,
          Below is a picture of the underside of the Intelligent Power Distribution module as used in the Series 3 and 4. In the bottom left corner of the picture is the ledgend for what each fuse is and it's rating. Just can't see from that picture the Tail lamp fuse number 45 but that shouldn't be too difficault.

 If your caravan wiring has caused this issue, just be aware that if your wiring causes the Brake light fuse to go, it will put the CVT into limp mode and this can happen at any speed.

Hope this helps.
