I know I know...why not keep it simple right?Ozvtr wrote: ↑Wed Jan 05, 2022 9:20 pm
The reverse light switch is a VERY simple circuit. No multiplexing, ECU's or jiggery-pokery. This tells me that the fault is very simple too. The ECU's are very cunning buggers. They can tell short circuits and open circuits and tell when contacts should make and when they should break (by using the opening and closing of the other contacts). HOWEVER they only log the fault in the background and you may need a LEXIA to read them. Apparently those indicator LED's are SOOO expensive, that the engineers decided to do the owner a favor and only tell them when some stuff goes wrong. After all ignorance is bliss! And if they do tell you something has gone wrong...the indication is so cryptic as to make it next to useless!!! Sorry, rant over.
At the end of the day, they need ways to keep you using their services ($$$) when something isn't right...
I've always disliked automatic cars for far too many reasons...but... missus can only drive auto so... here we are
Yeah it's not excluded for now... but I'll wait for LEXIA to arrive and check before trying to get it replaced in case.
No...I did not unfortunately...just visually checked and cleaned it.... didn't know exactly which one it was on the PCB honestly and could not find any diagram of it...
thought so...thanks for confirming
