    Kia Venga reversing lights 5th Aug 18 at 6:35 PM
    Both lights are not working so I've put new bulbs in, still not working. The audible warning isn't working either. I cant see in the online manual if there's a separate fuse or if a new switch is the remedy. Any advice would be gratefully received, thanks.

    Most likely the reverse light switch on the gearbox or the connector on it. Cheap part, minimal labour if you pay someone.

    Category N (formerly Category D)
    Vehicles graded accordingly havenít sustained structural damage, so the issue may be cosmetic, or a problem with the electrics that isnít economical to repair.
    Donít assume such vehicles are drivable, however; non-structural faults may include brakes, steering or other safety-related parts.

    So you come on here for advice and don't bother telling people that it is a cat d. This is money saving expert not psychic moneysaving. If it had been the latter we would have been asking for the lottery numbers.

    Summary - give full disclosure if you want the best advice.

    <passes multimeter>
    Time to start properly troubleshooting. Do you have voltage to the bulbs? Do you have voltage to the switch on the box? Do the lights come on if you bridge the switch? I presume it's multiplexed, so are there any fault codes logged?
