    Pull-type pressure plate as used on Range Rover P38 2.5 diesel (BMW engine) and later on 2.8i Defender. Attached to the same very expensive dual mass flywheel on both, hence the springless clutch plate.

    Anyone have the wiring diagram for the reverse light? Replaced the switch but no power going to the back.

    Tx in advance.

    Have you got 12V at one of the switch wires you should have, if not look at fuse, if you have then bridge the terminal and see if get 12V at the end of wire at light, if you do then connect switch and put into reverse and re check,
    next check earth wire at light make sure it is earthing,
    also check contacts on light could be loose or corroded and even blown globe,
    there are also terminals close to reverse light check them
    therw is also a terminal connector by clutch on the firewall chech there as well
    if putting LED rev light some times wires need to be swooped round
    ignition must be on for light to work

    I am speaking under correction as I worked on it fairly long ago and my memory is a bit foggy.

    Power comes via the fuse box to the switch. From the switch to the reverse light. The light grounds on the body.

    If all else fails, pull all the fuses (take a pic beforehand) and pull the reverse light bulb. Using a multimeter on continuity function and an extension wire clamped to the reverse light contact point, tone the fuse holders until you identify the correct fuse.

    Verify that the opposite slot of the fuse holder feeds 12v. Try to reverse engineer the circuit like that.

    If none of the fuse holders tone, you probably have a broken wire between the fuse box, switch and reverse lamp.

    Alternatively, the switch may provide the ground. I cant remember if it was the reverse switch or difflock switch where I have seen this.

    If this is the case, 12v is constantly fed to the reverse lamp. The ground wire runs to the switch and when it is 'on', the circuit to ground is completed.

    The wires that run to the rear aren't in an awesome location. I am assuming it runs on top of the chassis and not inside.

    The exhaust likes to burn them and gravel also eats them away. A visual inspection may reveal melted or broken wires running to the back.

    A while back some company fixed our potholes, they used a truck that sprayed the tar at high pressure.
    I ask twice if I should move my vehicle, they assured me my vehicle is safe.


    While washing the Landy I discovered that the whole vehicle is covered by a fine overspray of tar.

    I should have trusted my gut feeling.
    Some might say that I should have claimed or made a fuss, I just wasn't into all the schlep and I knew I would do the job better.

    A couple days back I was reverse parking at the office and saw the brake lights weren't on...
    So I checked the fuse and it was fine so my thought was that the switch was gone and started getting quotes on replacement.

    Yesterday I took the afternoon to investigate a bit further and found the wiring to be fine so it definitely is the switch. Upon taking the switch out, I saw it to be in relative good condition and so I cleaned it and tested it outside the hole it stays in and it worked fine. This is when I came to realize the 'setting' of the switch which is quite important. I don't know how it came out of it's correct position but basically it needs to be just wound into the thread slightly as too much will leave the button pushed in permanently and then no brake lights. It also has a brass washer which locks it in this position. I suspect this washer was not tight and the switch wound itself deeper or even looser and then sat skew in the hole.

    Was quite an interesting job as it's not in a very nice position to work and the Sun did it's work on my neck and back of my legs.

    If everything noted in the above posts fails try checking the part of the selector in the gearbox that activates the switch. Mine was so worn down that it couldn't push the switch in far enough to turn on

    Next time just spray some Doom on the marks, leave it a couple of minute and wipe of.
