    2004 9-5 reverse light switch

    My reverse lights stopped switching on. I replaced the bulbs but that didn't solve the issue. Can someone help me to locate the reverse light switch ? Is it easy to get to ? I hope it's a simple fix. It's an automatic model 2.3T Arc sedan. Thank you

    I had the same issue awhile back. Check the fuse for the reverse lights. Once I replaced the fuse, my reverse lights and backup sensors worked again.

    Unfortunately, there is still a problem because the fuse blows when I put it in reverse, so there is some kind of electrical issue somewhere that I have yet to diagnose. I leave electrical problems to the professionals.
