Can anyone tell me which fuse covers the rear reversing lamp and rear fog lap on my 5 door C3 Picasso? The lamps will not work and they are not blown.

I have a user handbook and the fuse lists do not state which fuse it is.

Hi mjmuk,

There are no fuses for the rear fogs or for the reversing lamp on the diagrams I have. Those lamps are shown as being driven directly by the BSI module (fuse box in the glove box area).

Hi Arfur,

Do not see that module in my glovebox. Are you saying that this module also drives the Rear Fog light as that is not working either. Surely there must be a fuse for these two!!

Yes, the BSI drives the rear lights, some fused, others not. Fog lights are not fused, but the brake lights are fused.

I don't see one. If you check every fuse and find one blown, then you may have found the culprit but from what I have seen, you won't find the fuse for those lights ;)

You may find a fuse in the engine bay that protects the whole reversing light circuit, but it also protects many of the other engine bay circuits and you would have more problems than just rear lights not working if this was blown.
