Since this is my first message, let me start with HELLO WORLD! :)
Now, the problem:
My reversing light is not working. Tail lights and rear fog lights work
fine, so this shouldn't be the grounding problem. Also the fuse is ok,
this must be something with the switch or the wires connected to it.
What is the location of the switch? Under the gearstick or near the
[ re reverse gearbox mounted light switchs ]
No it might not be, electronic speedometer drives have been around
for a couple of decades now, there could also be other sensors
connected to the ECU - like with gearbox drain plugs, don't assume,
you could end up with anything from a oil spillage to a major ECU /
Jerry ( snipped-for-privacy@INVALID.INVALID) gurgled happily, sounding much like they
were saying :
Quite. A '94 XM would have an electronic speedo - I have a feeling the Xant
has a cable, though even if that is the case a VSX would certanly have a
speed sensor (off the 'box, I think) for the Hydractive suspension.
Thanks. I don't have much time these days, so i'm still driving without
the reversing light... I'll check it out and post the result here. BTW,
it is the VSX, it has the Hydractive 2 suspension, i will ll be careful
Ahem, my 96 Xantia diesel had an electronic speedo. This I know cos the
sensor failed and I drove for quite some period of time without a speedo
until I found a garage who sorted it for me. I assumed it had a mechanical
speedo which is why I did nothing.
I don't have much time these days, so i'm still driving without this
light. I'll check it -probably- tomorrow, and post the result here, to
clear the doubts :)
BTW, it is the VSX, it has Hydractive 2, i will be careful :)
