Hi, thanks for the welcome and also for the quick response.
I think I have checked the fuses but can't say for sure I looked at the right ones
as working out what icon related to the reverse lights wasn't too cleat.
What do you mean by battery? The car drives okay, so is there a seperate battery for the reverse lights?
I plan on checking the bulbs tomorrow, but assumed they wouldn't both go at the same time, but hopefully I will be surprised.
I also have the KPH (instead of MPH) problem with mine and a mis-calibrated petrol needle, which reading other posts sounds like it requires a replacement panel. Just mentioned this in case they might be related in some way.
