    Reverse light on in all gears

    My 2001 euro spec z8 reverse light is coming on in all gears. It switches off in neutral. It works whether or not the lights are on. Any ideas on cures?

    Are you sure it's not the rear fog light that is on?

    The light only comes on when a gear is engaged. It doesn't come on in neutral.


    Also heated seats are inoperative as is the cruise control...I think its all related to a recent battery replacement..

    So I resolved the issue of the reverse light and cruise control. The car recently received a new clutch and the dealer (main dealer!) put the reverse light and the cruise sensor wires the wrong way round. They are both adjacent to one another and have the same clip system cheap repair!

    Now onto the heated seats...
