Hi there,

Have you noticed your rear wiper stop working if you have your front wipers on and select reverse gear? Just check your reversing lights are coming on too?

If your reversing lights are not coming on, this would stop your sensors working too as they work on the same feed coming from the gearbox. There are really only 2 possibilities as to the cause

1. A blown fuse

2. Reversing light switch on the gearbox is broken, and will need replacement.

It happened to my Laguna and the only reason I noticed the switch had gone is because the rear wiper didn't auto wipe when I selected reverse!

The part direct fron Renault is only 19 so at least it won't break the bank!

All the best
Currently in Mikey's garage:
1996 Mazda MX-3 V6, a 2002 1.2 8v Fiat Punto active (the Wife's!) and a 1998 Suzuki GN 125. Used to own a 2002 Laguna II Dynamique 1.8 16V (Now Sold yey!)
